Yesterday afternoon, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation received an overwhelming response upon opening applications for their Save Small Business Fund. They received thousands of applications for grants within minutes which led to technical difficulties for those who were still waiting to apply.
We apologize for this situation that we recognize was both frustrating and disappointing for you and your members. Please see a letter from Carolyn Cawley, President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, addressing the situation.
We remain steadfast advocates for the small business community during this difficult time and continue to work towards creating solutions and resources that will help you, your members, and your communities navigate this pandemic.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. We are grateful for your partnership during these challenging times.
