We are aware that lenders have had difficulty accessing SBA’s E-Tran system.  Below is the latest from the SBA headquarters. We will share additional information as it becomes available. 

We’ve heard about the E-Tran security request issues. Here’s what we are doing NOW to improve this now while preserving IT infrastructure security.

  1. SBA is running a script to enable all lenders that previously had an account with CAFS (Capital Access Financial Systems which is the portal to E-Tran) to be automatically reactivated.
  2. Any NEW USERS still must go through the security protocol to receive a user ID and password. That protocol can be found in these links.
