FFIEC Issues 2019 Guide to HMDA Reporting
The FFIEC issued its 2019 A Guide to HMDA Reporting: Getting it Right! This edition is effective as of January 1, 2019, for HMDA submissions due March 1, 2020. The guide includes information regarding a HMDA reporter’s responsibilities and requirements, directions for assembling the necessary tools, and instructions for reporting HMDA data. The guide was developed by the member agencies of the FFIEC. The updated edition incorporates changes that the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act made to HMDA, as well as the CFPB’s related 2018 HMDA interpretive and procedural rule. Additionally, the guide continues to include appendices developed by the member agencies regarding compliance materials useful for navigating HMDA requirements, such as the CFPB’s HMDA Small Entity Compliance Guide and various summary charts (regarding items like institutional coverage and transactional coverage).
