Water Residential Assistance Program (WRAP)


WRAP Logo Nov 2022
The City of Berkley partners with the Water Residential Assistance Program (WRAP) to provide funding to eligible, low-income households. The program is funded through dedicated Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) budgeted revenue and is administered by local service delivery partners. Representatives from the surrounding counties worked together with GLWA to create a program that is the first of its kind in Michigan. While funding is provided by the GLWA, the resources are administered in partnership with local community action agencies.

Under WRAP, participants will be able to access the support needed to pay past-due water bills and become self-sufficient.
