Fed provides FAQs on PPP liquidity facility
On April 20, the Federal Reserve Board (Fed) released a series of frequently asked questions (FAQs) and answers relating to the agency’s newly launched Paycheck Protection Program Liquidity Facility (PPPLF). As previously covered by InfoBytes, the PPPLF was up and running on April 16 to provide liquidity to banks making loans to small businesses pursuant to the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). The SBA-guaranteed PPP loans are used as collateral for term financing provided by the PPPLF. The PPPLF extends credit to financial institutions participating in the PPP at a fixed rate of 35 basis points. Additional information regarding the PPPLF, including a term sheet, borrowing documentation, and operational documentation including samples can be found on the Fed website here.
