The city of La Crosse has some good news for those who have projects around the home that they can’t quite afford.
The city’s Paint and Fix-up Program is now accepting grant applications aimed at sprucing up certain neighborhoods.
The $1,000 grants can be used for paint and repairs on exteriors of homes and garages for both single-family and rental properties — though rental owners have to provide a minimum 50 percent match.
The program is first come, first served and limited to a certain section of the south side only — roughly from Trane Park, north to Cameron Street, east to 17th and west to the river.
