The Bureau is committed to ensuring fair access to credit and eliminating discriminatory lending practices. This report describes the Bureau’s fair lending activities in prioritization, supervision, enforcement, rulemaking, interagency coordination, and outreach for calendar year 2018.

Fair Lending Report of the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection, June 2019 Message From Kathleen L. Kraninger, Director This Fair Lending Report describes the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s 2018 activities to expand fair, equitable, and nondiscriminatory access PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 to credit and to ensure that consumers are protected from discrimination.1 Earlier this spring I outlined my priorities for how the Bureau will use its tools to carry out our mission. I shared how Congress granted to the Director the tools of education, regulation, supervision, and enforcement, each of which serves an important component in the Bureau’s execution of its mission. I believe that the best application of these tools is to focus on prevention of harm to consumers and that includes protecting consumers from unfair, deceptive and abusive acts or practices as well as from discrimination. The Bureau’s very purpose is to ensure that all consumers have access to consumer financial products and services which is based on having fair, transparent, and competitive markets. Protecting consumers from discrimination is one of the primary objectives laid out in the Dodd-Frank Act—an objective that the Bureau takes very seriously. Under my leadership, the Bureau will continue to vigorously enforce fair lending laws in our jurisdiction, and will stand on guard against unlawful discrimination in credit. In addition to that core work, the Bureau will continue to explore cuttingedge fair lending issues including how consumer-friendly innovation can increase access to credit to all consumers—and especially unbanked and underbanked consumers and their communities. I am truly excited to take the Bureau’s work in fair lending to a new level, and I look forward to working with all stakeholders on these important matters. Sincerely, Kathleen L. Kraninger. Message from Patrice Alexander Ficklin, Director, Fair Lending. 2018 marked the Office of Fair Lending and Equal Opportunity’s seventh full year of spearheading the Bureau’s efforts to fulfill its fair lending mandate. It was also a year of transition for the Office as it prepared to move to the Director’s office as part of the Office of Equal Opportunity and Fairness. Throughout the transition, the Office has continued to focus on promoting fair, equitable, and nondiscriminatory access to credit and has embarked on new efforts to coordinate the Bureau’s fair lending work both internally, and with other governmental agencies, industry, and stakeholders to encourage innovation in expanding responsible credit access. The Bureau’s supervisory and enforcement activity in 2018 focused on 1 (12 E:\FR\FM\08JYN1.SGM U.S.C. 5511(b)(2). 08JYN1
