Economic Relief Pilot Program

When times are tough, KCP&L strives to find ways to help customers.

The Economic Relief Pilot Program (ERPP) is a great way to help ease the pain of monthly bills and provide help to budget your monthly expenses. For Missouri customers only, the program provides those with an income at or below 200% of the current federal poverty level with a credit of up to $65 per month, for a maximum of 12 consecutive months, if you qualify. 

How to sign up

KCP&L is partnering with The Salvation Army in the ERPP screening and application process. There are three ways you can sign up: 


  • An active, Missouri residential account with KCP&L that is in good standing
  • Not currently disconnected and not currently at risk of it
  • Income is at or below 200% of the current federal poverty level (see guidelines below)
  • Must not have been previously removed from the program due to mishandling of your KCP&L account (non-payment, tampering, diversion, fraud)
  • Must agree to participate in an interview regarding program participation if requested by KCP&L and/or the Missouri Public Service Commission
