South Kentucky RECC People Fund Grants Awarded

South Kentucky RECC has awarded People Fund grants to three, worthy community organizations. The People Fund was started in 2004 at the request of members who wanted to financially help meet community needs not met by other agencies or resources. Receiving grants are: Pulaski Elementary Project Lead the Way Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) lab, House of Blessings Soup Kitchen, and Clinton County Middle School Girls Basketball team.

To date, approximately 3,630 members are participating in The People Fund, which allows South Kentucky RECC members to “round up” their electric bills to the nearest dollar, with an average of 50 cents per participating member being contributed each month to the program. The most that it could cost a member is $11.88 each year.

Members interested in participating in The People Fund and rounding up their bill can sign up through the South Kentucky RECC member portal at Click the link below The People Fund heading to sign up your account(s) instantly. Members can also get an application from their South Kentucky RECC office or by calling their local office.
