Bank Emergency Loan Program
By Credit Federal | Published 08/1/2008
The federal government extends an emergency loan program to give banks access to more, longer term cash loans. With interest rates low, now is a good time for a good or a bad credit home, auto or personal loan.

The Federal Reserve; to help ease the credit crisis, is extending its emergency loan program to Wall Street firms.

In another program, investment firms can temporarily swap super safe Treasury securities for high risk investments, and the Fed will allow commercial banks to bid on longer term cash loans (from 28 to 84 days). The Fed said it is taking these steps "in light of continued fragile circumstances in financial markets." These programs are to last until the Fed determine that conditions in financial markets are "no longer unusual and exigent."

Investment houses were given similar, emergency loan privileges as commercial banks after a run on Bear Stearns pushed the nation's fifth-largest investment bank to the brink of bankruptcy. The situation raised fears that other Wall Street firms might be in jeopardy.

Investment firms bidding on the Treasury securities can put up as collateral more risky investments, including certain mortgage backed securities and bonds secured by federally guaranteed student loans. The program is intended to make investment companies more inclined to lend to each other. A second goal is providing relief to the distressed market for mortgage-linked securities and for student loans.
