As spring and warmer weather approach, many homeowners may start thinking about sprucing up their homes with a fresh coat of paint. Just in time, the City of Kansas City, Mo., announces that it is now accepting applications for its Paint Program, which provides free high-quality exterior paint to eligible Kansas City, Mo., homeowners.
Homeowners 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:
- live in Kansas City, Mo.
- own and live in the property to be painted
- own only one property
- meet HUD’s 2014 Low Income (80%) household income guidelines:
- One person - $39,150
- Two people - $44,750
- Three people - $50,350

- Five people - $60,400
- Six people - $64,850
- Seven people - $69,350
- Eight or more people - $73,800
Paint recipients must make all necessary repairs and properly prepare their houses for painting prior to receiving their supplies. After an inspector determines houses are ready to be painted, vouchers will be awarded to homeowners, allowing them to choose an in-store color of Porter paint; no color matching will be done.
