South Kentucky RECC recently awarded The People Fund grants to six 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.
To date, approximately 2,800 members participate in The People Fund, which allows the co-op’s members to round up their electric bills to the nearest dollar. South Kentucky RECC then contributes an average of 50 cents per participating member each month to the program. The most that it could cost a member is $11.88 annually.
Members interested in participating in The People Fund and rounding up their bill can sign up through the South Kentucky RECC member portal online at www.skrecc.com or get an application by contacting their local SKRECC office.
Organizations that want to apply for a grant can get an application and deadline information on the SKRECC website at www.skrecc.com, under the Programs and Services pull-down menu.
