$1 BILLION FOR ILLINOIS FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS
Illinois State Treasurer Alex Giannoulis has announced that the state will make available up to $1 billion in interest earning deposits to Illinois banks and credit unions, in an effort to thaw the credit freeze. In theory, this should help enable the lending of money to businesses and consumers throughout the state. Currently the treasurer's office invests $1.7 billion in financial institutions in Illinois. Under the new program, banks can request up to $25 million each. Any state and federally charted bank and credit union is eligible. The money to fund this program will come from a reallocation of the state's diversified portfolio.
