Frequently Asked Questions
What are the selection procedures for Paint The Town™ candidates?
A: Upon receiving applications, Paint The Town™ staffreview them for completeness and income qualification. Each homeowner’s circumstances are considered on a case-by-case basis. Homes are chosen for evaluation in April, and a Paint Evaluator assesses the structure’s need for paint and repairs. The homeowner(s) must be present to meet with the Paint Evaluator (those chosen will be contacted with further information). Having your home evaluated does not guarantee that you’ll have your house painted – this is just part of the application process. Once the evaluations have been completed, homes and teams are selected and matched in May. Paint and supplies are distributed to the teams in late May and they can begin preparing homes for painting. Paint The Town™ day is June 8, 2019.
Q: When will I find out if I have been chosen for Paint The Town™?
A: All applicants will be notified whether or not they have been chosen for this year’s project by May 4, 2019.
 What qualifies as a disability?
A: The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) provides specific definitions for a disabled household and for a person with a disability: A person with a disability is defined as an individual who: has a disability as defined in Section 223 of the Social Security Act; OR is determined to have a physical, mental, or emotional impairment which is: • expected to be of long, continued and indefinite duration; AND • substantially impedes his or her ability to live independently; AND • is of such a nature that such ability could be improved by more suitable housing conditions; OR • has a developmental disability as defined in Section 102 of the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act
My home does not need to be painted, but my shed does. Can I qualify for Paint The Town™?
A: Probably not. To qualify for Paint The Town™, your home must be in need of paint. Your home is evaluated and prioritized based on its need for paint, not the needs of outbuildings, garages, or fences. Our volunteer teams are only required to paint the exterior of your home, so you would not qualify for the program if your home does not need to be painted.
Q: My bathroom needs to be painted. Could a volunteer team help me with that?
A: No. Volunteer teams are only required to paint the exterior of your home. For liability reasons, they do not complete home maintenance projects.
Q: Will I get to choose what color my house is painted? A: If your home is selected for evaluation, our Paint Evaluator will visit with you and show you our color palette. Based on his experience and your home’s current color, he will recommend certain paint. (Please note that we only require volunteers to apply one coat of paint, so our Evaluator doesn’t often recommend broad color changes.) We will obtain your approval before proceeding.
Q: I live outside of Boise. Do I qualify for Paint The Town™? A: Paint The Town™ serves residents in Ada County. Homes in other counties do not qualify at this time. NOTE: If you’re a Nampa resident, you may qualify for Brush Up Nampa - (208) 468-5407.
Q: I have been chosen for Paint The Town™ and now I have questions about the project (when my team is coming, how long it will take them, etc).
A: Please contact your team captain to ask about the specifics of your project. Each team has their own timeline for the project based on their volunteer availability. You will receive their contact information with your notice of acceptance
Q: How can I support Paint The Town™?
A: Although this program is provided at no cost to you, you may support the program by making a contribution to our Buy A Bucket campaign. Your donation will help cover the cost of paint and get you into a great prize drawing.
