  • Treasury Provides TARP Funds to Local Banks

    (EMAILWIRE.COM, January 06, 2009 ) Washington - The U.S. Treasury Department announced details this week of a $15 billion investment in 7 banks made through its Capital Purchase Program.

    Treasury created the Capital Purchase Program, a part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program, to help to stabilize and strengthen the U.S. financial system. Treasury allocated $250 billion under TARP's Capital Purchase Program to invest in U.S. financial institutions. To date, the Department has made $177.5 billion of investments, receiving preferred stock and warrants from participating institutions. Investments have ranged from as small as $1.5 million to as large as $25 billion, financing community banking and Community Development Financial Institutions in 41 states and Puerto Rico.
