It’s been a challenging year for HMDA reporters. Complex new rules were effective Jan. 1, 2018, followed by the CFPB’s procedural rule issued Aug. 31, 2018. The new rule allows partial exemptions of selected HMDA data fields for small volume institutions. It is critical to understand the rules and be adequately prepared to file an accurate submission of 2018 activity by the March 1, 2019, deadline.

This is Part 2 of a two-part series. Part 2 will focus on preparing data for submission and the technical requirements. Join us for an in-depth review of the partial exemption rules and exemption codes.


  • Review of institutional coverage for all reporters for 2018 activity
  • May 24 rule changes and partial HMDA exemptions 
  • Decision points about exempt data
  • Some data fields are not required under the partial exemption rule, but it’s a best practice to retain and not report certain fields to support lending decisions and demonstrate fair lending compliance 
  • Options for reporting loans sold to the secondary market and partial exemption data fields
  • Using the Filing Instructions Guide (FIG) to clear the four types of edits (syntactical, validity, quality, and macro quality)


  • HMDA worksheets and flow chart for 2018 activity, including updated CFPB resources
  • List of data fields for each data point
  • Step-by-step data collection definitions and how to avoid mistakes
  • HMDA compliance resources, including submission checklists and fair lending considerations
  • Employee training log
  • Quiz to measure staff learning and a separate answer key
