The FFIEC 
is publishing this notice of availability to inform the public of the availability of the FIG for HMDA data collected in 2017 and the FIG for HMDA data collected in 2018. Each filing instructions guide is a compendium of resources to help covered financial institutions file with the Bureau HMDA data collected in 2017 and 2018.
Beginning with HMDA data collected in 2017, responsibility for receiving and processing HMDA data will transfer from the Federal Reserve Board (Board) to the Bureau. The member agencies of the FFIEC—the Bureau, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Board, and the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA)—as well as the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), have agreed that, for HMDA data collected in or after 2017, filing data with the Bureau will be deemed data submission to the appropriate Federal agency.
The FIGs for HMDA data collected in 2017 and 2018 provide summaries of changes to the submission processes for filing with the Bureau. The FIGs also include file specifications, which provide information regarding, for example, valid values, how to format loan/application registers, and how to file HMDA data collected in 2017 and 2018 with the Bureau. The 2018 FIG includes data specifications with instructions on entering data in the loan/application register for HMDA data collected in 2018. The 2017 FIG includes edit specifications, which list the edits that financial institutions must clear on HMDA data before filing it with the Bureau. The 2018 FIG notes that edit specifications for data collected in 2018 will be provided at a later date.
