Due to the high volume of the SBA Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) applications, some users have been experiencing some issues.
“I’m stuck on the e-signature processing tab…but I have a confirmation number. I sure hope I have my spot in line! Got my app done right at 12pm” A man said.
While speaking on the issue, The SBA said the place in line of the affected applicants is been reserved and the E-signature processing error will be resolved as soon as possible.
Affected applicants should “check back in the portal later to download their documents or check the status of their application“.
