Paint and Hurricane Shutter Assistance
The Energy Facilities and Transportation Division is currently not accepting applications for our various programs, except for the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP). This process will allow us to address the current waitlist. As additional funding become available, we will update our website accordingly.
This program can assist you with exterior painting or accordion hurricane shuttering of your home.
Participation in the program is subject to available funds, and subject to change without notice. Loans will be provided based on a first-come, first-served basis.
A lien will be placed on the home for five years, if you are applying for one program (painting or hurricane shutters) and 10 years for both services. The lien depreciates at 20 percent if the forgivable loan is attained for five years, and 10 percent if the forgivable loan is attained for 10 years.
Due to limited funding there are varying waiting periods for this program.
