On June 8, 2020, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (“Federal Reserve”) announced the expansion of the Main Street Lending Program (“MSLP”)[1] to enable more small- and medium-sized businesses to access the MSLP. This Alert summarizes the changes and, thus, supplements our prior Alerts on the MSLP, dated June 4, 2020 and May 1, 2020.

Notably, the Federal Reserve enacted the following changes:

  • Lowered the minimum loan size for certain loans from $500,000 to $250,000;
  • Increased the maximum loan size for all facilities in the MSLP;
  • Increased the term of each loan option from four years to five years;
  • Extended the repayment period for all loans by delaying principal payments for two years, rather than one year; and
  • Raised the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston’s participation to 95% for all MSLP loans.
