Learn how HMDA has changed and continues to change! Hear in-depth analysis as to the institutions and transactions that are covered – the importance of understanding the definitions, the basic coverage rules (including the changing of the thresholds), and the exemptions; the information required to be collected and recorded; and the processes for reporting and disclosing that data. Also hear about the possibility of being exempt from having to report certain data points (the partial exemptions)!

HMDA poses challenges to both novice and experienced reporters. With increased regulatory scrutiny of HMDA data for fair lending purposes and the potential penalties associated with technical errors, it is crucial for an institution’s HMDA data gathering and reporting process to be precise.

Throughout the presentation, the instructor discusses guidance published by the regulators and questions received from ProBank’s Advisory Service.
