Free Paint Available for Home Exteriors


Does your home’s siding or trim need a new coat of paint? While supplies last, the Corcoran Neighborhood Organization offers free exterior primer and paint to any Corcoran property owner (rental or owner-occupied) thanks to a generous grant from the Valspar Foundation. A “fan deck” of colors is available so that you can match an existing color or select a new one. Limit 5 gallons per property for 2013.

Property owners may request paint by sending an e-mail to with name, address of the property to be painted, a short description of the project, and number of gallons needed (figure 400 square feet per gallon depending on texture). Also include the Valspar name and number for each color (or say, “I still need to select colors”). Participants will pick up their paint at a Valspar location in St. Paul. Time from request to pick up will be 1-2 weeks.

If you don’t have access to e-mail, send the above information in a letter to CNO, 3451 Cedar Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55407.
