Brush-up Our Veterans – Lehigh Valley

Does your house need painting or do you know someone who’s house needs painting?

Are you a Veteran or the surviving spouse of a Veteran?

Are you unable to afford or physically unable to paint your house?

Then you may be eligible for the Brush-up Our Veterans program!

The Brush-up Our Veterans project coordinates the efforts of volunteers to paint the outside of homes of honorably discharged veterans and their surviving spouses who are low-income elderly or permanently disabled. It is designed for homeowners who cannot afford to hire to have the work done, do not have the physical ability to do the work themselves, and do not have relatives who can do the work for them. There is no charge to the homeowner.


  • Your house must be in Lehigh County or Northampton County.
  • The veteran, spouse, or surviving spouse must be 60 years of age or older or have a permanent disability at any age, and own the home that needs painting.
  • Your home must be a single family dwelling that you occupy yourself. The house must be structurally sound and not in need of major repairs.
