Download as PDF khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES 22936 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 97 / Monday, May 20, 2019 / Notices mortgage loans or 500 or more open-end lines of credit secured by a dwelling in each of the two preceding years. These institutions will begin reporting the expanded HMDA data in 2019, except to the extent they are covered by a partial exemption contained in a later 2018 rule (discussed below). Beginning in 2020, institutions will be required to collect data on open-end lines of credit if they originates more than 100 open-end lines of credit secured by a dwelling in each of the two preceding years (and report that open-end lines of credit data beginning in 2021). Institutions also will collect and report covered loans and applications quarterly if they reported a total of at least 60,000 covered loans and applications in the preceding calendar year. Institutions must report a covered loan if it has met the loan origination threshold for that loan category (openend or closed-end); an institution that is not required to report data may voluntarily do so. In addition, the types of loans covered under Regulation C changed under the final rules beginning in 2018. Covered institutions are now required to collect and report any mortgage loan secured by a dwelling, including open-end lines of credit, regardless of the loan’s purpose. Dwelling-secured loans that are made principally for a commercial or business purpose, as well as agricultural–purpose loans and other specified loans, are excluded. On September 7, 2018, the CFPB issued an interpretive and procedural rule 6 to implement section 104(a) of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act 7 (EGRRCPA). Section 104(a) amended certain provisions of the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) by adding partial exemptions from HMDA’s requirements for certain insured depository institutions and insured credit unions. Insured depository institutions and insured credit unions covered by a partial exemption have the option of reporting exempt data fields as long as they report all data fields within any exempt data point for which they report data. Section 104(a) of the EGRRCPA amends HMDA section 304(i), which provides that the requirements of HMDA sections 304(b)(5) and (6) shall not apply with respect to closed-end mortgage loans of an insured depository institution or insured credit union if it originated fewer than 500 closed-end mortgage loans in each of the two preceding calendar years. Sections 304(b)(5) and (6) of HMDA do not apply 6 83 FR 45325. L. 115–174, 132 Stat. 1296 (2018). 7 Pub.

An insured depository institution still must comply with HMDA section 304(b)(5) and (6) if it has received a rating of ‘‘needs to improve record of meeting community credit needs’’ during each of its two most recent examinations or a rating of ‘‘substantial noncompliance in meeting community credit needs’’ on its most recent Community Reinvestment Act examination.
