These arrangements were first announced on March 19, 2020 to ease strains in global dollar funding markets resulting from the COVID-19 shock and to mitigate the effect of such strains on the supply of credit to households and businesses, both domestically and abroad. Extensions to the facility through March 2021 and later through September 2021 were announced on July 29, 2020 and December 16, 2020, respectively.

    (Information contained in Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System press release dated: June 16, 2021) The Federal Reserve is committed to using its full range of tools to support the U.S. economy in this challenging time, thereby promoting its maximum employment and price stability goals. Progress on vaccinations has reduced the spread of COVID-19 in the United States. Amid this progress and strong policy support, indicators of economic activity and employment have strengthened. The sectors most adversely affected by the pandemic remain weak but have shown improvement. Inflation has risen, largely reflecting transitory factors. Overall financial conditions remain accommodative, in part reflecting policy measures to support the economy and the flow of credit to U.S. households and businesses. The path of the economy will depend significantly on the course of the virus. Progres...

Stress tests help ensure that banks have adequate capital to absorb losses so that they can lend to households and businesses even in a severe recession.

Banks with more than $100 billion in total consolidated assets are subject to the Board's stress tests. The smaller banks among those subject to the Board's stress test are only required to pa...

    (Information contained in Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System press release dated: May 17, 2021)

    In the fourth quarter of 2020, nearly one-fourth of adults said that they were worse off financially compared to a year earlier, reflecting the economic fallout and distress resulting from the global COVID-19 pandemic. The Federal Reserve Board's report, Economic Well-Being of U.S. Households in 2020, which was released on Monday, found a larger share of adults were worse off in 2020 than in previous years of the survey. This change occurred broadly across the population, but not all groups fared similarly. Despite the increase in the share of Americans doing worse off financially, most believed they were still at least doing "okay" financially overall. Seventy-five percent of adults were either doing okay or living comfortably in November, w...
