ST. LOUIS — St. Louis-based utility Ameren Missouri has announced it will provide an additional $3.5 million in energy assistance funds to help customers in the state who are facing financial challenges.
The funding is in addition to $1 million of support that Ameren announced in March, according to a release.
The effort is called the COVID-19 Clean Slate Program and it began this week. The program includes $3 million to help Ameren’s customers pay off past-due energy bills.
"Multiple community partners and agencies will participate in administering the program, which is designed to help income-eligible customers clear the remaining balance on their account after paying 25% of the current balance,” the company said. “For example, customers in a four-person household making up to $45,850 a year, or $3,821 per month, are eligible to apply.”
Details on another $500,000 for the program will be released later this year.
