Additional resources

The Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) is a United States federal law that requires certain financial institutions to provide mortgage data to the public. Congress enacted HMDA in 1975, and it is implemented by Regulation C. The Dodd-Frank Act transferred HMDA rule-making authority from the Federal Reserve Board to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) on July 21, 2011.

But there is much more. We are constantly reviewing resources made available by others, as well as generating many reports and tools of our own. The Mortgage Builder HMDA Hub is your one-stop-shopping source for HMDA-related materials.

Stay informed

The only thing that is constant is change. Between now and when the new HMDA regulations go live we will see more details, new resources, potential changes, and additional tools. We communicate regularly with our community and want you to be fully informed and prepared. Be sure to get the latest.
