Main Street Lending Program
The Main Street Lending Program will provide a total of $600 billion in financing for small and medium-sized businesses both for- and non-profit. Interested businesses will work with an eligible lender to determine if they meet the program requirements, which are available online, as well as the lender’s own underwriting standards. The lender will determine whether a business is approved for a loan. The Fed will participate in the lending by purchasing a 95% interest in the loan. The lender retains 5% of the loan.
