A Network of Eleven Regional Payments Associations
Located throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, and Guam, the Regional Payments Associations are specially recognized and licensed providers of ACH education, publications and support. While each Regional Payments Association is a separate organization, their shared mission is to educate ACH Network users and provide information and resources to their members. Representing the diverse breadth of U.S. financial institutions to NACHA, the Regional Payments Associations are key contributors to the NACHA Rulemaking Process, professional accreditation programs, and ACH advocacy and education. NACHA strongly encourages all financial institutions to seek and maintain membership in a Regional Payments Association.ePayResources
