Paint-South Dakota

South Dakota Housing Development Authority is offering an opportunity for 25 communities to participate in Paint – South Dakota for 2021.

Paint – South Dakota was started in celebration of SDHDA’s 25th Anniversary in 1998. To Date, 7,737 volunteers have applied 10,435 gallons of paint and primer to 538 homes across the State.

Enclosed is the poster for this special event and a copy of the application. We would like your help to spread the word and to encourage a volunteer group within your community to submit an application.

SDHDA will purchase the paint and primer needed. The volunteer group will be responsible for organizing the necessary equipment, as well as preparing and painting the house. In the past, communities and businesses have worked together to provide meals for the volunteers, printed t-shirts, and donated supplies.

The intent of the program is to help someone in need. Therefore, we request that you be selective in your nomination. Please keep in mind:

  • The home must be a single family, owner-occupied residence in need of painting.
  • The owner should be physically or financially unable to paint their home.


Nominations may be submitted to SDHDA and must be received in our office by 5:00 pm CT, April 16, 2021. Applicants will be able to select a weekend in June to complete the final painting of the home.

Thank you in advance for your assistance with this Campaign!
