HMDA Compliance

The Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) requires credit unions to disclose certain information regarding loans originated or purchased by the credit union. HMDA is implemented by the CFPB's Regulation C which was recently amended to include home equity lines of credit, establish transactional thresholds for coverage, and expand the number of HMDA data points collected from credit unions. Most of the new HMDA requirements will become effective January 1, 2018.

HMDA Data Collection Graph - May 2016Expansion of the HMDA data set to roughly 38 data points will likely necessitate major changes in the data collection processes, policies and procedures for many credit unions. Currently, more than 20% of NAFCU survey respondents manually collect data for most HMDA data points (May 2016 NAFCU Economic & CU Monitor data). Credit unions that are subject to the final regulation will need to have plans and processes in place well before the effective date.

Below you'll find credit union resources for HMDA/Regulation C compliance, including final rule summary, scope and applicability chart, insightful blog posts, articles and webcasts, to help you get up-to-speed.
