Representatives from the Initiative Foundation and Valspar will select 8-10 restoration or beautification projects to receive paint and coatings based on their visual impact, public benefit, volunteer participation and support, intended use and benefit to the needy.

Projects that may qualify for a grant include historic buildings, community centers, public buildings, facilities for seniors or people with disabilities, murals or other visual impact projects. Ineligible projects include denominational churches, city maintenance, schools (except murals) and privately owned buildings.

Projects must take place in one or more of the following counties: Benton, Cass, Chisago, Crow Wing, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Pine, Sherburne, Stearns, Todd, Wadena or Wright.

Applications are due by March 4. Successful proposals will receive coatings for projects by May.

For more information or to apply, visit www.ifound.org or contact Dan Frank at dfrank@ifound.org or 877-632-9255.
