St. Louis-based Ameren Missouri has announced a $500,000 energy assistance fund for small businesses and nonprofits affected by the pandemic, the St. Louis Business Journal reports.
Missouri small businesses and nonprofits with 50 or fewer employees can apply for the program and get a one-time $250 bill credit if selected. The program is created in partnership with the United Way to help small businesses and nonprofits with their energy costs.
Ameren ran a similar program early this summer for its residential customers who faced financial hardships due to the pandemic.
The company provided more than $5 million in energy assistance and charitable contributions since March.
