PAINT DODGE CONTINUES TO IMPROVE HOUSING CONDITIONS IN 2020
Dodge City KS – The Community Housing Association of Dodge City (CHAD) is excited to continue the Paint Dodge program for 2020. Paint Dodge provides paint and supplies to qualifying homeowners who live in Ford County. Since its creation in 2017, Paint Dodge has successfully painted eighteen homes and has two more in the pipeline to be completed this spring. Paint Dodge is currently accepting applications.
Paint Dodge provides paint and supplies to qualifying homeowners to enable them to repaint the exterior of their homes. If the homeowner is elderly or disabled, CHAD will help find volunteers to provide the labor. Painting is one home improvement strategy that is cost effective, produces immediate results and keeps your home protected from inclement weather. Exterior painting can enhance the value and prolong the lifespan of homes while alleviating deteriorating housing conditions within the county.
Residents must meet the following requirements to qualify for Paint Dodge:
- Applicants must own the land and residence and have permanent residence.
- Applicants may not own more than one property.
- Applicants income must be at or below 200% of poverty relative to federal low-income guidelines. A two persons household income must be $34,480 or less.
- Applicants must be current on property taxes.
