The Action Committee for Rural Electrification (ACRE®) is NRECA’s political action committee. ACRE was formed in 1966 with the mission of making the voice of rural electric cooperative consumers heard in the U.S. Congress. Currently, ACRE is among the top 100 largest political action committees (PAC) in the nation, with over 29,000 individuals contributing.

ACRE is truly a grassroots roots PAC. Nearly 6,000 of our members are electric co-op consumer-owners who have joined the ACRE Co-op Owners for Political Action Committee®. ACRE makes campaign contributions to candidates for Congress who support electric cooperative goals, who share our cooperative values.
