Added on October 25, 2021

The CFPB just release a statement to give guidance on what census tract boundaries to use for both 2021 and 2022 HMDA data.  The guidance is basically the same as it has been for each decennial census in the past.  Here is their text: In February 2021, the U.S. Census Bureau released the 2020 Census Data tract boundaries. As a reminder, Regulation C, 12 CFR 1003.4(a)(9)(ii)(C) requires financial institutions to provide census tract information for certain properties.

Added on September 29, 2021

On September 1, 2021, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) published its Summary of Proposed Rulemaking in regards to changes to the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA) as dictated under section 1071 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act). Under the proposed changes, lenders will be required to compile, maintain, and submit the type and purpose of the loan, the census tract for the applicant's principal place of business, and the race, sex, and ethnicity of the principal owners of the business, along with a number of other data points. RATA has reviewed the proposed rulemaking and found that this will coexist perfectly within Comply as a separate SBREFA component alongside CRA and HMDA, and believe that Comply…

Added on June 28, 2021

Added on June 25, 2021 The CFPB has released the official 2020 national HMDA peer data as of June 17th. RATA downloaded the data and quickly began formatting it for use in the Comply software, making sure to match all Institution IDs with the preliminary data release on April 7th. By ensuring that the Institution IDs align with one another between these sets of data, all Peer Institution Groups created with the preliminary data will continue to work the same as before. It is the CFPB's intent to periodically release updates to the 2020 HMDA data based upon re-submissions, late submission etc. and we intend to review the extent of any changes in 3 months' time to see if any updates are warranted. During the conversion process, differences were noted between the preliminary data and the…
