Scrubbing and Submitting 2017 HMDA Data


While the world of the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) is about to undergo major changes, creditors cannot afford to lose focus on the basic requirements of Regulation C that remain in effect until January 1, 2018. HMDA-reporting banks spend considerable time in January and February of each year "scrubbing" HMDA data before the March 1st submission date. In addition, financial institutions face new reporting requirements for 2017 data as the data must be submitted to the CFPB by March 1, 2018 through a new web interface known as the HMDA Platform, which includes the process for resolving edits. This webinar is designed to get you ready for these tasks.

Errors can result from the failure to report a covered loan, reporting a loan that is not reportable, miscoding data on reported loans. Regulators continue to report significant error rates for HMDA data. Penalties may be imposed for such errors. This program reviews data collection and reporting rules, common problems that occur when collecting and reporting the HMDA data, and issues related to the public disclosure of the information.


This two-hour webinar focuses on the existing requirements of HMDA and Regulation C. The existing data fields continue unchanged through the end of the 2017 reporting cycle; however, the reporting process is changing dramatically. This program covers the basic rules of HMDA and Regulation C and provides the information needed to assure accurate reporting of 2017 HMDA data.

Participants receive a detailed manual that serves as a handbook long after the program is completed.
