FedPayments Improvement Community

Join 4,000 of your peers by being a part of the FedPayments Improvement Community

The Federal Reserve believes that industry collaboration is the foundation of any enduring strategic improvements to the U.S. payment system. To that end, the Federal Reserve continues to engage with thousands of payment stakeholders, from across the payments ecosystem, to improve the end-to-end speed, efficiency and security of payments. As outlined in the Federal Reserve Next Steps in the Payments Improvement Journey (PDF), the enhanced FedPayments Improvement Community aims to provide opportunities for all stakeholders to engage in its full portfolio of payments improvement initiatives.

Today, the FedPayments Improvement Community has over 4,000 members representing financial institutions, merchant and business end users, consumer interest groups, nonbank payment service providers and networks, government users, regulators, industry trade associations, and more. We invite you to become a member and join us in this historic effort!
