Is your bank ready for potential liquidity challenges? Eligible institutions are encouraged to establish access to the Federal Reserve Banks’ Discount Window (Off-site) as part of contingency planning. The Federal Reserve Banks’ Discount Window helps eligible banks efficiently manage their liquidity risks by providing a contingency funding source.
The Federal Reserve Banks’ Discount Window teams are available to assist your institution with setting up Discount Window access. Depository institutions with Discount Window access are encouraged to routinely test such access. You may contact your local Reserve Bank (Off-site) with any questions.
To learn more about the Discount Window, including current interest rates, relevant guidance and eligibility, visit the Federal Reserve Banks’ Discount Window website (Off-site).
