Since the Investigative Reporting Workshop began publishing Banktracker in March 2009, we have tracked bank investments the Treasury Department made as part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program.
Even though the program is mostly winding down, the federal government still is owed more than $2 billion.
We also believe there remains significant public interest in how the program has operated even after banks repay their investments, or the Treasury sells off its stock in the banks.
We have added significant detail to our TARP pages, including more information about the sale of the government’s investments. We also have added details about banks that repaid their TARP investments using another government program, the Small Business Lending Fund.
For an example see the entry for First Bank of Charleston, W.Va.
Today we look at the latest news on credit unions.
