Yesterday, Treasury announced that it is extending its temporary Money Market Funds Guarantee Program through September 18, 2009. The Program, which was announced in September 2008 and extended in November 2008, was scheduled to end on April 30, 2009. The Program will “continue to provide coverage to shareholders up to the amount held in participating money market funds as of the close of business on September 19, 2008.” However, “funds that are not currently participating in the Program are not eligible to participate.” Details for continued participation in the program can be found on the Treasury’s website. The Program currently covers over $3 trillion of combined fund assets.
