CPF represents publishers of 86 free-circulation community papers, reaching approximately 3.5 million homes weekly.

Our membership is comprised of owners, publishers, general managers and sales managers of free-circulation community newspapers throughout the state of Florida.

Members range from small, independently-owned publications to free paper/shopping guide divisions of major communications companies. The common denominator is that each publication is distributed free of charge to the market it serves.
