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.
