Home Mortgage Disclosure Act Information Page

The Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, or HMDA, was enacted in 1975 and is implemented by the Federal Reserve Board's Regulation C. It requires mortgage lenders to disclose publicly information about their lending practices. In 2002, the regulation was amended to add considerably to the public data.Lenders first reported the new data in 2004, and it was released the following year. The data for 2005 was released on September 8, 2006.This section of CBA's web site is to help people understand the meaning of the new data, and to assist them in explaining it to others.
