HSH grants permission to utilize this graph,

Until December 2008, the Federal Reserve set an explicit target rate for the Federal Funds. Since that time, the central bank has instead expressed a target range for the overnight intrabank lending rate. Post-2008 data shown here is the top value for the target range.
