When you have to make RMDs... can you roll the amount distributed into a Roth?

No. RMD's must be completely removed from the universe of retirement accounts. You may convert amounts in addition to your RMD to Roth, though.

The prior response was correct, but I don't think it answered the question you asked. If you qualify to make Roth contributions you certainly may do so. The funding source is irrelevant.
