Free paint available for eligible City homeowners

Participants may choose paint colors and receive other supplies

Warmer weather signals the start of many things – one of which is the City of Kansas City, Mo., Paint Program. In 2011, this program provided free paint and supplies to more than 300 homeowners.

“This program helps improve our neighborhoods by assisting homeowners who need a little help with the upkeep of their property,” said Doug Bossert, section manager of the Housing and Human Services Division, which manages the Paint Program. “Qualified homeowners receive high-quality exterior paint for their homes at no cost.”

Eligible residents must complete an application to receive paint, primer, caulking and other supplies related to the painting of their home. Please note, the total cost of the paint supplies cannot exceed $500. Applicants must also:

    Reside in Kansas City, Mo.

    Own and live in the property to be painted

    Own only one property

    Meet these household income guidelines:

      One person - $41,100

      Two people - $46,950

      Three people - $52,800

      Four people - $58,650

      Five people - $63,350

      Six people - $68,050

      Seven people - $72,750

      Eight or more people - $77,450

Paint recipients must make all necessary repairs and properly prepare their home for painting prior to receiving their supplies. After an inspector determines a house is ready to be painted, a voucher will be awarded to the recipients, which allows them to choose an in-store color of Porter paint; no color matching will be done.
