Request Counseling Session

Personal Information:



I request business counseling service from the Small Business Administration (SBA) or an SBA Resource Partner. I agree to cooperate should I be selected to participate in surveys designed to evaluate SBA services. I permit SBA or its agent the use of my name and address for SBA surveys and information mailings regarding SBA products and services. I understand that any information disclosed will be held in strict confidence, said information including but not limited to confidential and proprietary information in any form whatsoever, including oral, written and machine readable form. SBA will not provide your information to commercial entities. I authorize SBA to furnish relevant information to the assigned management counselor(s). I further understand that the counselor(s) agrees not to: (1) recommend goods or services from sources in which he/she has an interest, and (2) accept fees or commissions developing from this counseling relationship. I waive all claims against SBA personnel, resource partners and host organizations, arising from this assistance. The estimated burden for completing this form is 3 minutes. You are not required to respond to any collection information unless it displays a currently valid OMB approval number.
