Keep Iowa Beautiful and Diamond Vogel Paint are announcing the 2018 Paint Iowa Beautiful program. The program provides free paint to a wide variety of public service projects throughout Iowa. This year Diamond Vogel has agreed to expand the paint allocation to include Iowa’s 70 state parks.
“We are pleased to provide additional paint to enhance Iowa’s state parks,” said Doug Vogel, Vice-President of Marketing, of the Iowa based company. “The 100th anniversary of our state park system will be celebrated in 2020 and the next two years provide a great opportunity to spruce up the beauty of our parks.”
“Keep Iowa Beautiful’s 15-year partnership with Diamond Vogel Paint has helped improve over 600 community projects in Iowa,” said Gerry Schnepf, Keep Iowa Beautiful Executive Director. “Over 8,000 gallons of paint along with hundreds of local volunteers are helping build stronger Iowa communities through beautification.”
The online grant application is now open to Iowans and can be completed and submitted by February 16, 2018. Access the Paint Iowa Beautiful application at: www.keepiowabeautiful.com/grants-awards/paint-iowa-grant/
