General description of report: HMDA was enacted in 1975 and is implemented by Regulation C. Generally, HMDA requires certain depository and non-depository institutions that make certain mortgage loans to collect, report, and disclose data about originations and purchases of mortgage loans, as well as loan applications that do not result in originations (for example, applications that are denied or withdrawn). HMDA was enacted to provide regulators and the public with loan data that can be used to (1) help determine whether financial institutions are serving the housing needs of their communities, (2) assist public officials in distributing public-sector investments so as to attract private investment to areas where it is needed, and (3) assist in identifying possible discriminatory lending patterns and enforcing anti-discrimination statutes.1 Supervisory agencies, state and local public officials, and members of the public use the data to aid in the enforcement of the Community Reinvestment Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, and the Fair Housing Act and to aid in identifying areas for residential redevelopment and rehabilitation. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR HMDA LAR is authorized pursuant to section 304(j) of HMDA, which requires that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (Bureau) prescribe by regulation the form of loan application register information that must be reported by covered financial institutions. Section 1003.5 of Regulation C implements this statutory provision, and requires covered financial institutions to submit reports to their appropriate federal agency. Section 304(h)(2)(A) of HMDA designates the Board as the appropriate agency with respect to the entities described above. The FR HMDA LAR is mandatory. HMDA requires the information collected on the FR HMDA LAR to be made available to the general public in the form required under regulations 1 See prescribed by the Bureau. The Bureau is authorized to redact or modify the scope of the information before it is publicly disclosed to protect the privacy of loan applicants and to protect depository institutions from liability under any federal or state privacy law. The redacted information may be kept confidential under exemption 6 of the Freedom of Information Act, which protects from release information that, if disclosed, would ‘‘constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.’’ 2 Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, July 13, 2021.
