Some banks are launching a “second look program” to review loans that have been denied in order to identify circumstances that might persuade underwriters to reverse their decisions.

The Financial Services Roundtable, a trade group of 100 financial companies, including Bank of America Corp., J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., and U.S. Bancorp. Bankers say these programs are starting to loosen the logjams that have made it so hard for both home buyers and small businesses to get loans.

"I don't think of it as being looser. I think of it as making good judgments," says Stephen D. Steinour, chairman, president and CEO of Huntington Bancshares Inc.
