If you were hoping for cooling assistance through Ameren’s Warm Neighbors Cool Friends program this summer, a change in the program’s qualifications may impact you. Program Outreach Coordinator Shane Hartman says the program opened statewide June 1 with new guidelines. This year, the program is targeting only seniors or those with a heat-related disability.
The program is funded through donations by bill payers. Hartman says to contribute check out your Ameren paper bill or find your electronic copy at the Ameren Illinois website.
