The Action Committee for Rural Electrification (ACRE®) is the federal Political Action Committee (PAC) of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA). ACRE raises personal, voluntary contributions from NRECA's eligible membership. Federal law prohibits soliciting contributions from individuals other than NRECA and member-systems’ eligible employees, boards of directors, consumer-owners and the families of such individuals. Contributions to ACRE are deductible (Use AR 1800 Form) from state income tax. In other words, eligible cooperative employees can join and support the organization at no out-of-pocket expense.
Through ACRE, cooperatives ensure that they are playing a vital part in the political process. Involvement in the political process is the only way electric cooperatives can make sure their voices are heard.
ACRE's strength comes from you and your commitment to cooperative rural electrification. It is each individual's membership that helps us stand together and allows ACRE to remain strong and promote the legislative objectives of the rural electric program.
