Banking on Main Street

June 22, 2020

The speakers will cover the establishment of the Main Street Lending Program.  As part of its broad effort to support the economy, the Federal Reserve developed, among other programs, the Main Street Lending Program (“Program”) to help credit flow to small and medium-sized American businesses that were in sound financial condition before the flu pandemic. The Program was established under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) signed by President Trump on March 27, 2020. Under this Program Eligible borrowers can qualify for a Main Street New Loan Facility; the Main Street Priority Loan Facility; or Main Street Expanded Loan Facility.  The Federal Reserve has issued guidance in the form of term sheets for each of the loans under the Program and frequently asked questions (FAQ) guidance. The Program has not yet become operational.
