The Treasury Department said Monday that it is extending its temporary guarantee program for money market funds until April 30.

The program was unveiled this year to cover shareholders up to the amounts they held in participating money market funds as of the close of business on Sept. 19. It was created after a Reserve Management Corp. money market fund broke the buck, or fell below $1 a share. Since the guarantee program was created, no other money market fund has broken the buck.
