The Federal Reserve announced a series of upcoming webinars and drop-in sessions for potential Main Street Lending Program (MSLP) borrowers. The sessions will be on May 29 and June 3. 

This webinar is an opportunity for potential borrowers to learn more about the program and ask questions to senior officials from the Federal Reserve. To allow as many potential borrowers to participate as possible, each business is asked to register no more than two representatives for the live session. A recording of the session will be available shortly after the call.
