Community projects needed for Valspar Picture It Painted Program

Are you looking for a way to spruce up your community, neighborhood or park? West Central Initiative (WCI) may have a solution with the Valspar Picture It Painted program. Through a continued collaborative effort with the Valspar Corporation, paint and coatings will again be available in 2008 to communities and public organizations located in the west central Minnesota counties of Becker, Clay, Douglas, Grant, Otter Tail, Pope, Stevens, Traverse and Wilkin to complete a rehabilitation or restoration project.

Paint and other products, including stain and sealant, will be awarded for interior or exterior restoration or beautification projects that best meet the eligibility criteria. Selection will be based on the visual impact of the project, public benefit to the community, local volunteer participation and support, intended use of the building and benefit to the needy.
Projects that qualify include, but are not limited to, historic buildings, senior citizen or handicapped facilities, community centers, public buildings and murals. Projects that do not fall within the scope of the Picture It Painted program include denominational churches, schools, city maintenance or privately owned facilities. Projects outside of WCI’s nine-county service area do not qualify.

Applications are due March 1, 2008 and approved projects will be announced on or after March 22, 2008.

Download the application here, or, for more information on the Picture It Painted program, call Roberto Tapiz at 1-800-735-2239 or email him at roberto@wcif.org.
