SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The SBA has continued to hear from many lenders, particularly rural/small lenders, that despite recent efforts to streamline its loan processes through such initiatives as guaranteed loans. This is supported by the limited number of SBA loans produced by small lenders. As a result, SBA is moving forward to redesign its standard 7(a) loan application form and re-engineer its standard 7(a) loan process for loans of $350,000 or less, which will be processed through a centralized and highly automated and streamlined loan facility. The proposed information collection thus represents the first phase of the redesign of an existing SBA loan form (SBA Form 4 and Form 4–1), initially for loans of $350,000, with the redesign intended to reduce the time and paperwork of lenders and the public to prepare an SBA loan application. This redesign of the SBA loan application process for loans of $350,000 or less will be the first phase of what ultimately will become a tiered loan application process that will require less information for smaller loans but appropriately more information from a borrower or lender as the size and/or complexity of a loan increases.
