Primary Dealer Credit Facility

The latest Primary Dealer Credit Facility (PDCF) was established to support the credit needs of American households and businesses. It allows primary dealers to support smooth market functioning and facilitate the availability of credit to businesses and households.

The PDCF offers overnight and term funding with maturities up to 90 days and is available on March 20, 2020. It will remain available to primary dealers until March 31, 2021, unless extended by the Board of Governors and Treasury Department.
