New TNP Program Awards Grants for Exterior Upgrades to Homes

WARREN, Ohio – Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership has launched a grant program to provide support to homeowners making improvements to the exterior of their houses.

Through the Paint Plus program, the Trumbull County Land Bank – operated by TNP – will provide up to $5,000 in matching funds for 10 properties. Eligible improvements include exterior painting, siding, doors, lighting, cleaning and re-pointing brick, removing or repairing awnings, gutter and downspout, shutters and porches. Landscaping, roofs, windows and interior repairs are not eligible.

“After a decade of a heavy emphasis on remediating blight and vacancy, this program underscores our commitment to preserving long-term owner occupancy as a strategy to build strong communities.” said Matt Martin, TNP executive director, in a statement.

Applicants must be up-to-date on property taxes and live in an owner-occupied residential home. Those interested in applying or seeking more information can contact Shawn Carvin at 330 469 6828 ext. 7 or [email protected].
