PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 25439 Abstract: The Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) requires most mortgage lenders lending in metropolitan areas to collect data about their housing-related lending activity. Annually, lenders must report those data to the appropriate Federal agencies and make the data available to the public. The CFPB’s regulation requires covered financial institutions that meet certain thresholds to maintain data about home loan applications (e.g., the type of loan requested, the purpose of the loan, whether the loan was approved, and the type of purchaser if the loan was later sold), to update the information quarterly, and to report the information annually. The purpose of the information collection is: (i) To help determine whether financial institutions are serving the housing needs of their communities; (ii) to assist public officials in distributing public-sector investment so as to attract private investment to areas where it is needed; and (iii) to assist in identifying possible discriminatory lending patterns and enforcing antidiscrimination statutes. The information collection will assist the CFPB’s examiners, and examiners of other Federal supervisory agencies, in determining that the financial institutions they supervise comply with applicable provisions of HMDA.
