The Detroit Water Project is not the only way that people can receive assistance with their water bill. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department says there are two other programs to assist people -- the million-dollar Detroit Residential Water Assistance Program (DRWAP) and the nonprofit Wave Fund, which takes donations. To receive assistance, people must prove that they are at poverty level and in need. After providing documentation, people usually receive assistance within three to seven days, says Curtrise Garner, a spokesperson for the Department.
The moratorium on cut offs will end in 12 days, but if people owe now, they are going to be cut off when the moratorium ends. The Detroit Water Project plans to stay active as long as it takes to resolve this crisis. It's a real way for real people to really help real people with no strings attached!
