Welcome to Federal Credit Fridays! The U.S. government is one of the largest lenders and credit guarantors on earth. Its portfolio is estimated at over $3.6 trillion, as measured by loan assets and the face value of loan guarantees. The government uses credit for a wide variety of policy missions, including housing, higher education, small businesses, rural and urban economic development, infrastructure, and export promotion, among others. This podcast will familiarize you with the vast world of federal credit, and we hope that you’ll learn about similarities and differences between these programs as well as the importance of their work to achieving policy missions within the framework of public-private collaboration.

In today’s podcast, Andrew McCabe, Director of Risk Management at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Loan Programs Office, discusses the office’s $18 billion loan portfolio, which consists of borrowers in the renewable energy and energy-efficiency sectors, advanced technology vehicle manufacturing, and advanced fossil, nuclear, and related transmission infrastructure spaces.
