FFIEC Releases CRA Peer Data

Added on December 16, 2020

UPDATE: The CRA Peer, Performance Evaluation and Market Share data is now available and can be downloaded from the support site. The 2019 CRA Aggregate and Disclosure data, used for CRA Peer analysis, was finally released on Monday, December 14. This year, like the last, there was a major delay in the release of this data for some undisclosed reason. Due to the smaller volume of this data, we typically see it released a month or so prior to the HMDA data, which was released August 30. We have completed the process of converting the data for use in Comply, Comply Peer2Peer and DataMine. The name of this file is PEERCRA19. The CRA Performance Evaluation table data was also compiled and has already been released through Auto-Updates and posted to the RATA Support Website. The name of this…

Comply 20.01 Now Available

Added on December 10, 2020

Since the release of Comply 20.0 in late October, a few changes have been made that can affect your Comply experience. A fix to correct filtering made just prior to the release of Comply 20.0 inadvertently broke the Quick Set functionality. While there was a workaround for that using Global Set, the bigger issue was that it affected Automation in Fair Lending. Secondly, an issue surfaced where creating Peer HMDA entities using institutions with identical names was causing a duplication error. Lastly, just yesterday, the FFIEC published edit changes to CRA for the 2020 reporting year. While the edits do not affect submittable records, we took this opportunity to get them into the Comply 20.01 update. If your institution is interested in any of these changes or you have not installed the…

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (Bureau) settled with Washington Federal Bank, N.A., a federally insured national bank, to address the Bureau's finding that it reported inaccurate Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) data about its mortgage transactions for 2016 and 2017.  Inaccurate HMDA data can make it difficult for the public and regulators to discover and stop discrimination in home mortgage lending or for public officials and lenders to tell whether a community's credit needs are being met.  The settlement requires Washington Federal to pay a $200,000 civil money penalty and develop and implement an effective compliance-management system to prevent future violations. The Bureau found that Washington Federal, headquartered in Seattle,…

RATA Implementing the CRA Modernization

Added on September 18, 2020

The OCC published their Final Rule changes regarding modernization of CRA data collection on May 20th and there were several changes in the ruling that can affect Comply; both in the collection of CRA-reportable data as well as assessment area analysis. While most of the rule changes are a few years away from full implementation, there are some aspects that we are moving forward with now in Comply to gain some momentum. Specifically, the upcoming release of Comply 20.0 will include a geocode attribute that denotes if a geocoded loan or loan application is within a Native Land or Tribal Area. This addition, while in the spirit of the OCC changes, could be of value to CRA reporters of other agencies as well. We are also incorporating a field in the demographic data to facilitate…
