Changes to the Federal Reserve's Practices Regarding Disclosure of Discount Window Lending Information

In accordance with the provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Pub. L. No. 111-203), the Federal Reserve has changed its practices with respect to disclosure of discount window lending information. Effective for discount window loans (primary, secondary, and seasonal credit) extended on or after July 21, 2010, the Federal Reserve will publicly disclose the following information, generally about two years after a discount window loan is extended to a depository institution:
  • The name and identifying details of the depository institution;
  • The amount borrowed by the depository institution;
  • The interest rate paid by the depository institution; and
  • Information identifying the types and amounts of collateral pledged in connection with any discount window loan

Our Frequently Asked Questions have been updated to reflect these changes.
