Water Residential Assistance Program (WRAP)

Program Details

The Water Residential Assistance Program (WRAP) was established as a result of the historic agreement that stood up the Great Lakes Water Authority in 2015. WRAP was officially launched on March 1, 2016 and its day-to-day operations are coordinated for GLWA by its contractual partner Wayne Metro.

The program is the first of its kind in Michigan and one of only a few models of sustainable assistance plans in the country, and represents a hallmark of regional collaboration to provide assistance to people in need in the communities that GLWA serves throughout southeast Michigan.

WRAP not only provides direct assistance with bill payment and arrearages, it also provide funds for home audits and fixture repairs and replacements that will conserve system resources and further reduce the amount of homeowners’ bills moving forward.
