Guidance from the SBA

Here is guidance directly from from the SBA portal update:

Borrowers that already requested a loan increase by email can now take the next step and log into their portal and click on the “Request More Funds” button. We are contacting borrowers that requested increases directly by email over the next 2 days to advise them of this next step, but borrowers checking their portal do not have to wait to take the next step. It will not affect the request order.

When you first login you may see a screen like the one shown below. Click the blue "Request more funds" button.
