The Federal Reserve said it will create a program to help speed the flow of funds to small companies through the government’s coronavirus stimulus, marking its latest step to shield the U.S. economy from the pandemic.

The facility will provide term financing to banks against loans issued under the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program, the Fed said in a brief statement Monday.
