The attached Summary of Treasury, Federal Reserve, & FDIC Credit and Liquidity Programs provides an overview of generally available financing facilities that the U.S. government has put in place since the start of the financial crisis to help ease tension in the credit markets. These facilities utilize funds appropriated as part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program ("TARP"), funds committed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC"), and funding supported by the balance sheet of the Federal Reserve. The Summary does not address programs such as the Targeted Investment Program or Systemically Significant Failing Financial Institutions Program which are tailored to the specific needs of particular institutions. These programs continue to evolve and, as such, the terms of each program are subject to change periodically. Please refer to the websites of the regulatory authorities administering the programs for additional detail.
