Keeping up the appearance of our buildings and facilities is an important component of viable communities. Well-maintained and painted buildings reflect pride in our communities. Through a partnership with Diamond Vogel Paint of Orange City, Iowa groups can receive paint for community enhancement projects. More than 5,000 gallons of paint have been donated to community groups through the Paint Iowa Beautiful program.
Award Announcements: Mid-April of each calendar year.
Mail or email applications to: Keep Iowa Beautiful, 300 E. Locust St., Suite 100, Des Moines, IA 50309

Paint will be purchased from your local Diamond Vogel Paint dealer (Find Iowa locations at www.diamondvogel.com). The invoice for the number of gallons of the award should be sent to Keep Iowa Beautiful at 300 E. Locust St., Suite 100, Des Moines, IA 50309.
Upon receipt of the notification of payment, a check will be sent to the award recipient (normally within a week of receipt of the invoice/payment notice). Reimbursement will be made for paint only – not for items such as rollers, brushes, scrapers, etc.
Copies of any photos (with everyone and everything clearly identified) and news or media coverage should be submitted as soon as possible after the project is completed. Please include any quotes from community leaders that might be used by either Keep Iowa Beautiful or Diamond Vogel Paint Company.
