Flint residents are encouraged to apply for the Water Residential Assistance Program (WRAP)—a two-year program that provides assistance to eligible, low-income households through water bill credits, arrearage assistance, and water conservation assistance, such as minor plumbing repairs.

WRAP representatives resume their normal schedule this Thursday, January 5 at Flint City Hall this week, following adjusted holiday hours. Representatives will continue to be available onsite every Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. to help residents apply for the program.

Flint residents can enroll in WRAP online at www.WayneMetro.org/WRAP, by phone at 810-510-9727 or in-person at the Flint City Hall Customer Service office.

The Great Lakes Water Authority Board of Directors recently approved the transfer of more than $1.5 million in additional funding for City of Flint residents through WRAP.

A newly implemented WRAP Income Based Plan (IBP) offers bill credits based on household income and amount of the water and sewer bill. The goal is that after bill credits are applied, the amount the household is expected to pay toward their water and sewer bill is three percent of the household’s income.

Participants can also receive conservation assistance and minor plumbing repairs. To participate in WRAP, an applicant must have household gross incomes at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty income thresholds, be responsible for paying the water bill, and own or rent the home.

Upon enrollment, a household will receive:
• Bill credits based on income and amount of water and sewer bill;
• Up to $1,200 in year one toward past due bills or back payments and an additional $1,200 in year two;
• Conservation measures and education, as well as minor plumbing repairs up to $2,000.

This is absolutely tragic news and we are heartbroken. BB was a kind and passionate leader, and served on the Genesee County Land Bank Board of Directors for many years. He cared deeply about his City and County, and in particular he worked tirelessly to improve the lives of our youth. He was one of a kind and irreplaceable in the fabric of our community. He will be greatly missed.

The Flint community has lost one of our most steadfast advocates today. Bryant “BB” Nolden embodied community service. His journey from educator to public servant to non-profit leader impacted thousands of people throughout our community; most importantly, our youth. While his absence will be deeply felt across Flint, we will not forget the passion and spirit that he shared with us.

The flags at Flint City Hall will be lowered to half-staff for the remainder of this week in BB's honor.

We will demolish these structures in small, medium, and large size groupings of properties over the next four years so we can engage small, medium, and large-scale qualified contractors to complete demolitions. We will work as fast as possible while doing our best to keep residents safe and costs low so we can do as many demolitions as possible.

We will begin to issue bids for competitive pricing in November and demolition of some emergency structures throughout the City of Flint and other demolitions in out-county areas will be underway starting in December.

We anticipate that up to 500 structures will be demolished or in process within the first year and up to 700 structures will be demolished in each the second year and third years.
Demolitions will be completed following a map and schedule to be posted on the Land Bank’s website later this month.

Demolition Funding - Genesee County Land Bank

The Funded Demolition List is Now Available!

Property lists are available on our website - https://www.thelandbank.org/demofunding.asp. Demolition status on funded demolitions will be updated on our website and available www.flintpropertyportal.com.

We use resident feedback to create a scoring framework to prioritize 1,910 properties for demolition out of the 2,900 properties in need of demolition. The funding we have so far enables us to clear 65% of blighted Land Bank properties in need of demolition.

We heard from residents that they want us to prioritize blighted structures adjacent to occupied homes and in areas where lots of residents live. We also heard that they want us to give higher priority to houses with major fire damage and those close to schools, parks and major roadways. With this funding, we will clear about:

o 90% of dangerous structures including those with fire damage (687)
o 90% of blighted structures in the Land Bank’s inventory that are adjacent to occupied structures (1,382 structures)
o 90% of blighted structures near schools (42 structures)
o 62% of blighted structures in the Land Bank’s inventory that are near major roadways (569)
o 70% of blighted structures in the Land Bank’s inventory near parks (569)
