Overburdened or Disadvantaged Communities

The MML Foundation and our partners are committed to increasing water equity in Michigan by providing capacity support to those communities who need it most. For this reason, we've made it a priority for MI Water Navigator to support overburdened or disadvantaged communities through free technical assistance.

Increasing access to state and federal funding for disadvantaged or overburdened communities is a critical first step toward making sure all Michiganders have safe and affordable water systems. We believe that providing capacity support through technical assistance can make a difference by helping communities leverage state and federal funding to make necessary improvements to their water infrastructure.

We’re constantly working to bring together a network of technical assistance to meet your needs. Start a consultation with our expert Helpdesk team to discuss funding application options or apply for one of our partner technical assistance programs.
