WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Treasury today issued the following statement on the Supplementary Financing Program (SFP):

"Treasury anticipates that the balance in the Treasury's Supplementary Financing Account will increase from its current level of $5 billion to $200 billion.   This will restore the SFP back to the level maintained between February and September 2009.  

This action will be completed over the next two months in the form of eight $25 billion, 56-day SFP bills.   Starting tomorrow, SFP auctions will be held each Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. EST, unless otherwise noted."
