originated or purchased.
Maturity and Acceleration of Maturity: The maturity date of an extension of credit under the Facility will
equal the maturity date of the PPP Loan pledged to secure the extension of credit. The maturity date of the
Facility’s extension of credit will be accelerated if the underlying PPP Loan goes into default and the eligible
borrower sells the PPP Loan to the SBA to realize on the SBA guarantee. The maturity date of the Facility’s
extension of credit also will be accelerated to the extent of any loan forgiveness reimbursement received by
the eligible borrower from the SBA.
Rate: Extensions of credit under the Facility will be made at a rate of 35 basis points.
Fees: There are no fees associated with the Facility.
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (“Board”) and Secretary of the Treasury may make

Collateral Valuation: PPP Loans pledged as collateral to secure extensions of credit under the Facility will be
valued at the principal amount of the PPP Loan.
Principal Amount: The principal amount of an extension of credit under the Facility will be equal to the
principal amount of the PPP Loan pledged as collateral to secure the extension of credit.
Non-Recourse: Extensions of credit under the Facility are made without recourse to the borrower.
Regulatory Capital Treatment: Under section 1102 of the CARES Act, a PPP Loan will be assigned a risk
weight of zero percent under the risk-based capital rules of the federal banking agencies. On April 9, 2020,
the Board, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
issued an interim final rule to allow banking organizations to neutralize the effect of PPP Loans financed
under the Facility on leverage capital ratios.
Facility Termination Date: No new extensions of credit will be made under the Facility after September 30,
2020, unless the Board and the Department of the Treasury determine to extend the Facility.
