Commercial Paper Funding Facility
The Commercial Paper Funding Facility (CPFF) was created in October 2008 to provide a liquidity backstop to U.S. issuers of commercial paper. The CPFF was designed to improve liquidity in short-term funding markets and thereby contribute to greater availability of credit for businesses and households.

Under the CPFF, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York financed the purchase of highly rated unsecured and asset-backed commercial paper from eligible issuers through eligible primary dealers. The facility expired on February 1, 2010.
