Added on December 29, 2016

The federal bank regulatory agencies today announced the annual adjustment to the asset-size thresholds used to define small bank, small savings association, intermediate small bank, and intermediate small savings association under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) regulations.

RATA to add Business and Farm Census Data to Comply

As part of the upcoming 16.1 Comply release, RATA will be adding the Business and Farm data based on a census of businesses.

All reports that use this data will be offered in both the current aggregate versions and the census of businesses versions to increase your analysis options.

As part of the upcoming HMDA changes, we are getting a lot of inquiries on two topics in particular. 1) Handling of the HMDA 2017 data submission in February 2018. There are no data changes to the HMDA 2017 data being submitted in February 2018.

"No mortgage lender that is required to report their loan data can avoid this responsibility." The Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, which was originally enacted in…
