Ensuring Equal Opportunity
The crop insurance program is a public/private partnership between the USDA’s Risk Management Agency and approved insurance providers (AIPs) like us! With this partnership comes a critical responsibility to educate our customers and equip them with resources to conduct business in a fair, equal and non-discriminatory manner. Below are just a few of the ways we strive to accomplish this, and how our business partners can too!
And Justice for All
The "And Justice for All" Civil Rights poster must be prominently displayed in all offices who are recipients of federally assisted programs, including AIPs and their contracted agencies. This required poster should be displayed in the specific size of 11" wide x 17" high. This size requirement relates to a problem where the poster's text becomes small and almost unreadable when printed in a typical printer's print size of 8.5" x 11". If you need copies, please contact your Hudson Crop Regional Sales Manager or the Overland Park, KS office, and we will mail additional copies to you.

If English is not your primary language, we have free resources available to help you and your customers understand the crop insurance policy(ies). “I Speak” cards are also available upon request. Listed at the bottom of this article are some of the translation resources currently available. However, if you / your customers are in need of other languages or custom-translated resources, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accessibility Accommodation Plans & ADA Requirements
Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires public accommodations to provide goods and services to people with disabilities on an equal basis with the rest of the general public. The goal is to afford every individual the opportunity to benefit from our country’s businesses and services, and to afford our businesses and services the chance to benefit from the patronage of all Americans. We strongly encourage our affiliates to review the ADA requirements and formulate a written Accessibility Accommodation Plan for your offices. A checklist for existing facilities can also be used as a reference in developing your plan.
