In response to the pandemic, small business owners are eligible to apply for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan advance of up to $10,000. This advance will provide economic relief to businesses that are currently experiencing a temporary loss of revenue. Funds will be made available within three days of a successful application and will not have to be repaid.
If a small business is an active, small business/commercial Spire customer in Missouri or Alabama, and they’ve been impacted by the coronavirus, Spire is here to help.

In order to qualify for assistance, the small business must:
Show loss in revenue month over month due to COVID-19 closure
Be a valid entity confirmed through the Secretary of State and/or Better Business Bureau websites
Be non-franchised and locally owned
Have active gas service with Spire for the last 6 months
The maximum assistance available is $200 per small business.
