An added layer to the Keeping Current Low Income Program by Ameren Missouri has been approved by the Missouri Public Service Commission. The program allows Ameren customers who face a financial hardship to apply for credits to the bill through MOCA or Central Missouri Community Action. Connie Taylor with Ameren says the approval of the request for a variance to the program allows them to help those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, through layoff, reduced hours, or sick leave.

The Keeping Current Program normally would remove someone who from the program who had a missed payment, was late or made a partial payment, but that is being waived. The program which is administered by Community Action agencies can also give customers break in utility cost.

To apply for the Keeping Current Program for Ameren Missouri customers contact the Community Action Agency for your community.
