The Bureau also seeks comments relating to the requirement that institutions report certain business- or commercial-purpose transactions under Regulation C. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background A. HMDA and Regulation C HMDA requires certain depository institutions and for-profit nondepository institutions to collect, record, and report data about originations and purchases of mortgage loans, as well as mortgage loan applications that do not result in originations (for example, applications that are denied or withdrawn).1 By its statutory terms, HMDA defines ‘‘mortgage loan’’ as (1) ‘‘a loan which is secured by residential real property,’’ or (2) a ‘‘home improvement loan.’’ 2 The purposes of HMDA are to provide the public with loan data that can be used: (i) To help determine whether financial institutions are serving the housing needs of their communities; (ii) to assist public officials in distributing publicsector 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.3 Prior to the enactment of the DoddFrank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act), Regulation C required reporting of 22 data points and allowed for optional reporting of reasons an institution denied an application.4 1 To simplify review of this document, the Bureau generally refers herein to the obligation to report data instead of listing all of these obligations in each instance. 2 12 U.S.C. 2802(a)(2). 3 12 CFR 1003.1. 4 As used in this document, the term ‘‘data point’’ refers to items of information that entities are required to compile and report, generally listed in separate paragraphs in Regulation C. Some data points are reported using multiple data fields. E:\FR\FM\08MYP1.SGM 08MYP1
