Bay Mills Indian Community I.H.S Water/Sewer Assistance

 

The Bay Mills Indian Community in conjunction with Indian Health Services Sanitation Services annually offers a limited number of grants for Tribal Member assistance with the installation of water and sewer or septic services. A Tribal Member can only be served once in a lifetime for these services. The home must be located within Chippewa County and be a primary residence. Applications should be submitted well in advance of the time the services will be needed as the total process takes several months before any work can start and only a few are funded each year.
