About the Community

We believe that payment system improvements should be collectively identified and embraced by a broad array of payment participants. To that end, we continue to engage with thousands of payment stakeholders, from across the payments ecosystem, to improve the end-to-end speed, efficiency and security of payments.

The FedPayments Improvement Community was formally established in early 2015 as a key channel for bringing stakeholders together. Outreach with the Community includes regular email communications, virtual touchpoints – such as webinars, feedback opportunities – and periodic in-person events.

To-date, more than 8,000 industry leaders have become a part of our vibrant Community.

We invite you to join us in this historic movement.
