Ameren Missouri announced it would give $1 million in energy credits to social service agencies across its 57-county service area.
This program is the second phase of the $5 million commitment the company announced in August. Assistance will be in the form of a $1,000 bill credit to each agency's Ameren Missouri account.
To be eligible, an agency must be a 501(c)(3) organization with an annual revenue of less than $5 million and must provide services to help children, the elderly, the disabled or a combination of the groups. In addition, each agency must have been an Ameren Missouri customer for at least a year.
Agencies must complete an online application at AmerenMissouri.com before Nov. 26. Agencies will need their Ameren Missouri account number and federal identification number when applying. The application period may be closed early if funds are depleted before Nov. 26.
Agencies will be notified by letter whether their request has been accepted or if funds have been depleted. Notification should be received within four to six weeks after submitting an application.
No applications will be accepted by telephone or fax, and agencies may not check the status of the applications by phone.
