CHAMPAIGN COUNTY — Families struggling to pay energy bills could get some help from Ameren. It’s partnering with the Champaign County Regional Planning Commission for a community outreach event.

Customers who qualify get a $100 grant. It will be applied directly to their energy bills. Organizers say, even if you’re getting assistance from other agencies, like LIHEAP, you’re still able to take advantage of the offer.

Ameren says if you don’t qualify, it has other options. Customer service reps will be on hand to help lower monthly payments.

Customer Outreach Event
March 15, 9 am
MTD Bus Terminal
45 University Avenue
Bring bill, ID, proof of income
