The Federal Reserve Board issued updated Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for the Main Street Lending Program (MSLP) loans on May 27, 2020.
The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston has provided certain form language and documents as well as instructions for completing the required documents to be used with MSLP loans. The MSLP was created in early April by the Federal Reserve Board and the U.S. Department of the Treasury in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and its impact on U.S. businesses, states and municipalities. (See Holland & Knight's previous alert, "Treasury, Federal Reserve Release Final Main Street Facility Term Sheets," April 30, 2020.)
The new FAQs include some significant changes and revisions to the program, and Holland & Knight is in the process of reviewing and analyzing the new content. Additionally, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston has provided instructions and a series of legal forms and agreements for an eligible lender and an eligible borrower to use with the various MSLP loan programs.
