LakewoodAlive announces the return of its Paint Lakewood Program for the 2017 season.  This innovative program is designed to help make it more affordable for qualified Lakewood homeowners and residents to beautify their homes through exterior painting.

Paint Lakewood will provide a grant of up to $3,500 to Lakewood homeowners and residents for exterior paint, supplies and professional labor costs to paint their home.  The program has been designed to offer a grant on a sliding scale to help reduce the cost of a whole house paint.

The Paint Lakewood Program’s primary goal involves revitalizing Lakewood’s neighborhoods while reducing lead hazards by educating residents on lead safety issues.

“We’re pleased to be able to once again offer Lakewood homeowners and residents the opportunity to participate in our Paint Lakewood Program,” said Allison Urbanek, LakewoodAlive’s Housing Outreach Director.  “This program serves as an invaluable tool for helping low-to-moderate income residents improve their homes through affordable exterior painting.”

Qualified Paint Lakewood Program applicants must meet HUD-established income guidelines, and other restrictions do apply.  Visit for more information or contact Lisa LaRochelle, LakewoodAlive’s Staff Program Assistant, at 216-521-0655.
