Income and residential status determine eligibility
The City of Wichita is again offering free paint for people who meet income guidelines and whose property is in targeted assistance areas. Qualified homeowners are eligible for up to $250 in paint.
The target area is bounded by I-235, Pawnee, 25th Street North and Hillside. It also includes the Neighborhood Revitalization Area and all Local Investment Areas such as the Hilltop and Planeview neighborhoods. The income limit for a single person household is $3,900; the four-person household limit is $52,700.
“This program makes such a big difference in the appearance of the home as well as the entire block”, Mary K. Vaughn, Director of the Housing and Community Services Department, said. “We want help from neighborhood associations to spread the word to members and consider organizing paint parties.”
The 2014 Paint Program will end September 19. It is funded with Community Development Block Grant funds from the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development.
