Making a Difference with Lowe’s
Thanks to a grant from Lowe’s, Beaches Habitat for Humanity will be painting the town this fall. The $22,500 grant is designated for Home Preservation projects in Atlantic Beach, with a focus on the Royal Palms neighborhood.
Home Preservation is now a part of our Senior Repairs program! Home Preservation projects include minor exterior repairs and improvements to help revitalize the appearance of neighborhoods and strengthen connections within the community. Through the program, Beaches Habitat also helps older homeowners who struggle with exterior maintenance to reclaim their homes with pride and dignity.
Apply for the Program
Beaches Habitat is accepting applications for local seniors in Atlantic Beach whose exterior needs a fresh coat of paint. To be eligible for the program, applicants must:
- Be 60 years of age or older
- Own and live in your home
- Live in Atlantic Beach
- Have a single-story home in need of exterior paint
- Be willing to pay a project fee of $250, with a $50 downpayment
- Meet income requirements based on the number of residents living in the home
- Be able to provide income documentation from the last 30-day period
- Be able to pass a background check
- Partner with Habitat and work alongside volunteers (if applicable)
- Choose from ten available color options
Homeowners interested in applying should contact the Beaches Habitat office at (904) 241-1222. Funding is limited, and applications will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Help Paint the Palms
Beaches Habitat will need extra hands to meet our project goals! Paint projects will start in mid-August and groups of 8 to 10 volunteers are an ideal size. Four hours shifts are available on Thursday and Friday from 8 am to 12 pm, and Saturday from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. If you’re interested in helping to paint, please contact Sarah Jared at (904) 595-5793 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
