The Main Street Loan Program (US Treasury and Federal Reserve)

The Federal Reserve is taking additional actions to provide up to $2.3 trillion in loans to support the U.S. economy with the creation of a Main Street Lending Program (Main Street Program) to provide financing to lenders that make direct loans to main street businesses. The Federal Reserve will work with banks to give out up to $600 billion in four-year loans. These loans would be at least $1 million and could go up to a maximum of $25 million. This emergency loan program will support small and mid-sized businesses that were in good financial standing before the pandemic and that may be too small to access broader capital markets or the Federal Reserve’s facilities supporting larger corporates, or that may not qualify for the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program.  More information on the program can be found here.
