Regulatory Relief
Guidance to Help Financial Institutions and Facilitate Recovery in Areas of Kentucky Affected by Severe Storms and Flooding
June 4, 2009

Summary: The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has announced a series of steps intended to provide regulatory relief to financial institutions and facilitate recovery in areas of Kentucky affected by recent severe storms, tornadoes, mudslides and flooding.


  • Severe storms, tornadoes, flooding and mudslides that began on May 3, 2009, have caused significant property damage in Kentucky.
  • A federal disaster was declared on May 29, 2009, and includes individual assistance for Breathitt, Floyd, Owsley, and Pike counties.
  • The FDIC is encouraging banks to work constructively with borrowers who are experiencing difficulties beyond their control because of damage caused by these disasters.
  • 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 also will consider granting regulatory relief from certain filing and publishing requirements.
