A severe winter storm caused significant property damage in areas of New Jersey during the period of December 26–27, 2010.
A federal disaster for selected areas in New Jersey was declared on February 4, 2011.
The FDIC is encouraging banks to work constructively with borrowers experiencing difficulties beyond their control because of damage caused by the severe weather.
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 regulatory relief from certain filing and publishing requirements.
