The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) continues to build its library of resources to assist HMDA reporters in transitioning to the revised HMDA data collection rules that become effective starting January 1, 2018. The CFPB has made available on its website a webinar that provides an overview of the HMDA final rule and addresses institutional and transactional coverage, the data disclosure and submission process, as well as some key dates found in the final rule. In order to facilitate access to this webinar, the CFPB has also provided a method for viewing the video on YouTube.
Also available, is a HMDA transactional coverage chart that may be used when determining whether a transaction is reportable under HMDA. In addition, the CFPB has posted a PDF of the sample demographic data collection form from Appendix B of the HMDA final rule that reporters can use to collect an applicant’s race, sex, ethnicity and age.
The webinar and other implementation resources can be found on the CFPB’s dedicated implementation webpage for HMDA here. Technical questions regarding HMDA may be submitted to the CFPB via email to HMDAHelp@cfpb.gov.
