The 20 IMPA member communities participating in the grant are Brooklyn, Crawfordsville, Dunreith, Frankton, Greendale, Greenfield, Huntingburg, Lawrenceburg, Lebanon, Lewisville, Linton, Middletown, Paoli, Rising Sun, Scottsburg, Tell City, Tipton, Walkerton, Washington, and Winamac.

IMPA is a not-for-profit that provides wholesale power to 52 communities in Indiana and one in Ohio that serve about 320,000 customers.
