What is WRAP?
The Water Residential Assistance Program (WRAP) is an assistance program to be available to qualifying low-in come retail customers of communities served by the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA). Provisions for the WRAP are included in the GLWA incorporating documents executed by Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties, the City of Detroit, and the State of Michigan. GLWA will assume operational control of the regional facilities of the current Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) on the effective date of the Authority to occur no later than January 1, 2016.
The WRAP program was designed by a team of exceptionally knowledgeable and experienced Advisory Group members including representatives of agencies from Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne Counties, and community service agencies in the GLWA service area. WRAP has been designed to provide for an equitable disbursement of available funds to assist low-income customers with water and sewer bills and encourage water use efficiency.
WRAP will be managed by a qualified Program Administrator who will be selected through an open procurement process. Funding Made Possible by the Great Lakes Water Authority.
