The second disbursement of “Operation Roundup” funds totaling $73,683.95 will be awarded to 37 recipients from 7 counties comprising the REMC’s service territory at a special awards ceremony held August 29, 2017 at the REMC Community Building. 

The 9 member Operation Roundup Board of Trustees met July 31st and determined that these 37 grant applications met all the requirements.  The grant money is made possible through the generosity of the REMC membership by “rounding up” their monthly electric bill to the nearest dollar amount.  The next opportunity to receive an Operation Roundup grant is scheduled for January 2018.  Applications will be accepted in the month of December 2017.  You can obtain more information about Operation Roundup program or download a grant application and guidelines at  The following projects received Operation Roundup funding:
