Recently this series reported on the Federal Reserve’s new Main Street Lending Program. This program is intended for small and medium sized businesses.
To address the needs of those businesses, and following public input, ‘The Fed’ has made changes to the program which include:
- Lowering the minimum loan size for certain loans to $250,000 from $500,000;
- Increasing the maximum loan size for all facilities;
- Increasing the term of each loan option to five years, from four years;
- Extending the repayment period for all loans by delaying principal payments for two years, rather than one; and
- Raising the Reserve Bank’s participation to 95% for all loans.
See ‘The Fed’s’ full statement on the Main Street Lending Program’s updates (from which the above is quoted).
As noted by the Greater Gainesville Chamber of Commerce in its June 9, 2020 e-newsletter:
Businesses can go to any federally insured bank, credit union, savings association to apply. For eligibility criteria and a complete list of the types of institutions you can go to for a Main Street Loan.
As mentioned in several past articles, if a business is interested in pursuing a loan through the Main Street Lending Program, it should contact its lender, attorney, and accountant immediately.
