Through the TIP, the Treasury purchased $20 billion in preferred shares from both Bank of American and Citigroup.

This purchase was on top of an initial $25 billion investment through the Capital Purchase Program, and followed by a multi-agency government guarantee of approximately $118 billion of its assets offered through the Department of Treasury, FDIC, and Federal Reserve.

In December 2009, both Bank of America and Citigroup repurchased $20 billion each in their held by TIP. Currently, there are no outstanding investments for this program.
