American agriculture needs an advocate. Together, we can make our voices heard in Washington. Join the American Coalition for Rural Engagement (ACRE) in our efforts to protect crop insurance and rural America.


Our mission is to protect the vital interests of American farmers and ranchers by advocating for the US crop insurance program. We are dedicated to safeguarding the sustainability of American agriculture and rural communities.


At the heart of our commitment to agricultural sustainability and the well-being of our farming and ranching community is our unwavering dedication to crop insurance program stewardship.

We understand the critical role that crop insurance plays in safeguarding the livelihoods of American farmers and ranchers and ensuring food security for our nation. ACRE strives to ensure this program remains a reliable safety net for those who depend on it. We are committed to continuously fighting to improve crop insurance effectiveness and maintain the highest standards of program stewardship to support the resilience and prosperity of our agricultural industry and rural America.


With your support, ACRE will act as a powerful proponent for rural America, farmers and ranchers, and their families.
