Missouri Fuel Funds

  • The Mid America Assistance Coalition (MAAC) of Kansas City, administers more than $600,000 each year to assist those unable to pay their utility bills. More than 4,000 families are helped annually through the seven privately donated MAAC managed funds.
  • Dollar-Help, Inc. (DHI) was founded in 1982 and partners with Laclede Gas Company who matches customer donations $1 for every $5 up to $4,000 per month. Laclede Gas also donates all administration, fund raising and promotion expenses. In 1984, local congregations became involved and initiated Super Dollar-Help Weekend to raise funds for DHI.

Raising nearly $1 million per year, the program is funded by the customers of AmerenUE and administered by the United Way.
