The Main Street Lending Program: How to Access Funds and Prepare for the Rush of Applications


CLE credits earned: 1 GENERAL (or 1 LAW & LEGAL for WA state)

The CARES Act established two main lending programs from small and mid-size businesses (SMBs): the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and the Main Street Lending Program (MSLP). The MSLP is focused on providing liquidity to businesses that do not qualify for the PPP or would not be helped by it. Between the Treasury and Fed, $2.2 trillion of capital will be made available to businesses, banks, bond issuers, and municipalities. The various facilities provide relatively inexpensive and easy to obtain funds. On April 9th the Fed released preliminary terms sheets for the programs. This webinar will explain what is known thus far about the MSLP, how to access funds, and how to prepare for the likely rush of applications, given the popularity of the PPP.
