Term Sheets Finalized for Main Street Lending Program
May 4, 2020
The Main Street Lending Program (“MSLP”) is designed to provide support to small and medium-sized businesses during the current pandemic. The availability of additional credit is intended to help companies that were in sound financial condition prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic maintain their operations and payroll until conditions normalize. The loans will be provided by funds invested by the Department of Treasury. The terms sheets have been finalized for the program, which should be up and running shortly.

Main Street Lending Program Waiting for Green Light from Congress – What We Know Now
April 17, 2020
What is the Main Street Lending Program? In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Federal Reserve established the Main Street Lending Program (“MSLP”) to enhance support for small and mid-size business that were in good financial standing before the pandemic. There are two subcategories to the MSLP: the Main Street New Loan Facility (“MSNLF”), which applies to newly issued loans for a company, and the Main Street Expanded Loan Facility (“MSELF”), which applies to refinancing of existing loans of a company. The main focus of MSLP is to retain employees (at least 90% of a business’s employees as of February 1, 2020). It is also intended to alleviate slow cash flow stress on profitable businesses.
