The Resources for HMDA Filers webpage has been updated with additional resources.
January 5. 2017. These materials are also accessible from the FFIEC website.

In addition, we remind HMDA filers of changes to financial institution coverage in effect from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017. On October 15, 2015, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) issued a final rule amending Regulation C, which implements HMDA. The final rule narrows the scope of depository institutions subject to Regulation C in 2017. A depository institution will not be subject to Regulation C in 2017 unless it: (1) meets the current Regulation C asset-size, location, federally related, and loan activity tests, and (2) originated at least 25 home purchase loans, including refinancings of home purchase loans, (as those terms are defined in current Regulation C) in each of the two preceding calendar years (i.e., at least 25 in 2015 and at least 25 in 2016). A 2017 HMDA institutional coverage chart illustrates how to determine whether an institution is covered by Regulation C in 2017.
