HMDA is known to be the most difficult lending regulation to understand and with which to comply. Unfortunately, the error tolerances are as low as 5% and many banks suffer Civil Money Penalties for submitting inaccurate HMDA data. Additionally, the Dodd-Frank Act adds more HMDA data requirements and the CFPB has made it very well known that data must be accurate, so an understanding of the requirements is essential. Participants will receive a detailed training outline that will serve as a resource guide long after the program is completed.
