- The recent wildfires have resulted in considerable damage to the public infrastructure, structures, equipment and land in the affected areas of Oklahoma and Texas.
- The FDIC is encouraging banks to work constructively with borrowers who, because of these natural disasters, are experiencing difficulties beyond their control.
- Extending repayment terms, restructuring existing loans or easing terms for new loans, if done in a manner consistent with sound banking practices, can contribute to the health of the community and serve the long-term interests of the lending institution.
- The FDIC will also consider regulatory relief from certain filing and publishing requirements.
