This session starts with an introduction to the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA), its history, and purpose in improving access to housing and credit. The course then discusses the specific loan data collected and reported in compliance with the rule, as well as specific requirements of reporting. Panelists explain enforcement and provide tips and resources to help lenders comply.
