Who We Are

SAPA is a non-profit regional trade association which represents Free Circulation Publishers in 13 southeastern states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.

Free community papers and shoppers have long been an affordable and effective method of advertising, particularly here in the Southeast. These papers have grown in strength and numbers as our region has prospered.

Today we reach over 4 million homes every week, covering the entire southeastern United States and contact over 500 publications.
