Discount Window for Eleventh District banks

Monday–Friday | 8 a.m.–6 p.m. CT | Contact us

The Federal Reserve’s Discount Window provides lending to depository institutions to support the liquidity and stability of the U.S. banking system.

Eligible institutions can borrow money, usually on a short-term basis, to meet temporary liquidity needs. Our programs include primary, secondary and seasonal credit.

In addition to the discount window, the Federal Reserve has announced the creation of a new Bank Term Funding Program to bolster the capacity of the banking system to safeguard deposits and ensure the ongoing provision of money and credit to the economy.
