The City of Fort Worth considers diversity and vitality of neighborhoods among its most valuable assets. To help keep neighborhoods vital, the Cowtown Brushup program paints 50 homes every October and April on a first-come, first-served basis.

The community program is a volunteer-driven effort to help restore homes in need of exterior paint.

Program Services

Cowtown Brushup Program Technicians will perform a home inspection to determine if the home meets program requirements. Services include:

  • Preparing the house to be painted
  • Minor repairs of rotten trim and siding
  • Painting the exterior of the house
