RE: Water Residential Assistance Program Funding Reallocation


Upon recommendation of Nicolette Bateson, Chief Financial Officer/Treasurer, the Board of Directors (Board) of the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA), approve the reallocation of the uncommitted and unspent assistance funds of $2,815,194 to the City of Detroit and $1,515,874 to the City of Flint and authorizes the ICEO to take such other action as may be necessary to accomplish the intent of this vote.

Periodically, the Board of Directors considers the reallocation of uncommitted Water Residential Assistance Program (WRAP) funds by fiscal year. The purpose of a reallocation is to provide additional funding to those service areas where the funding was fully committed.

GLWA staff have compiled information across the WRAP program years to capture funds that were budgeted, reallocated, spent by the community action agencies, and commitments that remain as of June 30, 2021.
