Small Business Administration's Entrepreneurial Development programs collect information on small business owners or potential owners that receive counseling and training through SBA's resource partners, including Women's Business Centers, Small Business Development Centers, SCORE, and Veterans Business Outreach Centers. The information supports SBA's budget requests, reporting, performance plans, and other submissions to the President, Congress and Office of Management and Budget.

Title: Entrepreneurial Development Customer Intake Form & Training Report Form.

Abstract: SBA Forms 641 (Client Intake Form) and 888 (Training Form) are used to collect counseling, training and economic impact information from SBA Resource Partners and contractors that deliver business technical assistance.

Small revisions to the current Form 641 will be made to reduce burden.
