West Central Initiative (WCI) may have a way to help people spruce up their community, thanks to Valspar’s Minnesota Beautiful program. Through a continued collaborative effort with the Valspar Corporation, paint and coatings will be available in 2013.
Communities and public organizations located in the west central Minnesota counties of Becker, Clay, Douglas, Grant, Otter Tail, Pope, Stevens, Traverse and Wilkin will be selected to receive these supplies 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 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 those in need.
Projects that qualify include, but are not limited to, historic buildings, senior citizen or handicapped facilities, community centers, public buildings and murals.
Projects that are ineligible for the Minnesota Beautiful 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 to WCI by March 4. Approved projects will be announced on or after March 25. The application may be downloaded at applications.wcif.org.
