Fresh Paint Days


Home Depot Logo

Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania is a program designed to provide community groups with paint and painting supplies enabling them to renew a community structure in need into something beautiful through the application of fresh paint and a lot of elbow grease. This annual event is held in September with applications due in June. During this month-long period, grant awardees along with their volunteers will receive exterior paint and painting supplies.

This grant is now closed for 2019. Please check back for future Fresh Paint Days grant opportunities or contact Michelle Dunn toll free at 1-877-772-3673 ext.113 or e-mail for more information.
