Poll for those whose applications were approved in the last 3 weeks:
Did you call customer service to check up on the status of your application after submission, before it was approved?

I called but nothing so far.  My friend didn't call and is in closing.

Hello,

I am personally sending this email out to all the applicants whose applications I worked on for the bank account verification stage who may have not yet received their funding. (If you have already received your funding, then you may disregard this email).

I have been informed that we are currently experiencing a delay in funding, and I sincerely apologize for the inconveniences this may cause. Rest be assured, we are working diligently with the state to get all applicants funded as soon as possible. I have not been given a timeline on when the funds will be distributed, but if I do hear any updates, I will let you know.

If we find any issues with making the deposit to your account (such as incorrect routing number, incorrect account number, using a non-business checking account, etc.) we will reach out to you to resolve the issue which can cause further delay. Please use this time to review your banking information on your portal and double check that the bank name, account number, and routing number for your business checking account are correct.
Anyone else received this email?

Any idea if funds were depleted yet for this program or people are still getting approved?
Don't ask stupid questions and you won't get stupid answers

My Application says "Awaiting Selection" for months.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

That's code for you don't qualify.
Applications that qualify have the status of "In Review, Pending Validations".

My application says "In Review, Pending Validations" - since September. Any idea what the chances of approval are and what the timeframe is?

This program is now depleted of funds, and applications are no longer being reviewed/approved.

If anyone on here is a lawyer and knows if the gov can be sued for not following their own rules I have a bunch of ppl that would be interested in joining a class action on this.

According to the program guidelines applications are reviewed in the order received. This did not happen. Additionally less needy business (ie those with increases in sales yoy) were approved while others with decreases were not.

Wow. I have a friend who applied AFTER me, and he was approved a week later. This definitely needs to be investigated. Lendistry is at fault, not the government.

Where did you see that funds are depleted?
