About this grant

There is growing concern in the Great Lakes region and across the nation about the rising cost of drinking water, the need to invest $1 trillion in upgrades in water infrastructure nationally over the next 25 years, and the burden this will place on low-income households. Elevate Energy has worked from its base in Chicago to address affordability issues in the energy and water sectors. With this increase, the grantee will assist the City of Flint in developing solutions for water affordability.
