Wayne Metro Community Action Agency has been working alongside local leaders and organizations to support residents who experienced severe flooding due to the rain event of June 25th and 26th. Wayne Metro is able to dispatch PATH (Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness) Teams to help relocate residents to temporary, emergency housing while home clean up efforts take place.

The Agency is also accepting applications for emergency food and supplies, rent and utility assistance, along with property and income tax assistance. Additionally, Wayne Metro is also accepting applications for the Great Lakes Water Authority WRAP (Water Residential Assistance Program) that provides eligible residents of the GLWA service area with payment assistance and home water conservation services.

Residents are encouraged to:
  • Call (313) 388-9799 or visit www.waynemetro.org/Programs to find out what programs you may be eligible for.
  • Follow flood safety tips.
  • Not walk in standing water, particularly if the area includes electrical appliances or exposed outlets.
  • Not drive in standing water.
  • Take precautions for the event of more rain, including moving valuables to upper floors and making sure your rain-gutters and downspouts are cleared of leaves and other debris.
  • Detroit residents and businesses with flood damage should immediately apply for FEMA reimbursement. Even if you completed the DWSD claim form online or by mail, you still need to apply to FEMA and you can start the process at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or by call 800-621-FEMA (3362).
