If you are an organization, agency, business or local leader within Wayne County who is striving to make a positive impact on the community, Wayne Metro would love to partner with you!

Read below for more information about grant opportunities, the forms of support available for community events, and how to learn more about Wayne Metro’s Regional Advisory Council.

Regional Advisory Council

Wayne Metro’s Regional Advisory Councils (RACs) are comprised of Residential, Organizational, and Consumer community representatives who serve as consumer advisory board members to the Agency.

Regional Advisory Councils are instrumental in vetting and scoring Seeding Wayne County Grant Proposals submitting in their region. RAC Members also make up one-third of the Wayne Metro Board of Directors.
