Access to Capital


The Access to Capital Program enables the Treasurer's Office to place deposits in approved financial institutions throughout Illinois in the form of a time deposit maturing in 30 to 365 days or two years.  Deposits of these funds provide participating financial institutions (i.e. banks, credits unions, and savings and loan institutions) with added liquidity.  This provides financial institutions across the state with the added opportunity to administer important lending activities, which can be essential in supporting families, small businesses, and community development efforts.  Read the Access to Capital services overview sheet.


In fiscal year 2015 alone, the Treasurer's Office provided $85.5 million in Access to Capital deposits to financial institutions across the State of Illinois.
