South Kentucky RECC has awarded People Fund grants to nine, 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 were: Pulaski Elementary Music Class, Victory Christian Fellowship, Northern Middle School Future Problem Solvers, Science Hill Independent School Family Resource Center, Russell County Band Boosters, Russell County 4-H, Casey County 4-H, Clinton County 4-H, and McCreary County Extension Service Environmental Camp.

To date, approximately 2,900 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.

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.
