How do I know if my submission has been received and processed?

Received:

Submission via Web provides a confirmation that the HMDA file was received successfully at the Board.  Using Submission via Web provides a guarantee that the file will be in the correct HMDA submission format for processing.

Submission via Internet E-mail provides a confirmation e-mail that the HMDA file was successfully received; however, until the file is processed, there is no guarantee that the file your institution submitted is in an acceptable format.

Submission via diskette/CD-ROM using an overnight carrier will provide confirmation that the submission was received at the Federal Reserve Board building; however, until the file is received and processed in the HMDA Operations Unit, there is no guarantee that the file your institution submitted is in an acceptable format.

Processed:
Once your data submission is processed, your institution will receive an Edit Report to review and sign off on the confirmation sheet.  If your institution does not receive an edit report within ten business days of submitting your data, email HMDAHELP@frb.gov; in the subject heading of the email include ‘Outstanding Edit Report,’ Agency Code and State.

Data Entry Software


Can any year's HMDA software be used to prepare and export several different years of HMDA data?

Beginning with the 2009 HMDA Data Entry Software (DES) release, the DES is specific to only one collection year. In addition, the software root directory includes the century/year (CCYY) in that part of the path where the HMDA encrypted file is saved; thus, for the 2009 HMDA Data Entry Software, the DES root directory in the path will be HMDA Data Entry Software 2009. The full path for the saved 2009 HMDA encrypted file will be:


C:\HMDA Data Entry Software 2009\HMDASubmission\HRID_Agency_Year.ENC

What is Submission via Web?

Submission via Web, an exclusive export feature of the FFIEC HMDA Data Entry Software (DES), is the most secure and efficient method to submit your institution's HMDA data file to the Federal Reserve Board. Submission via Web offers a single-step submission process which provides confirmation that the HMDA file was received successfully at the Board. In order to use this new feature, the institution must be included on the HMDA panel (list of expected reporters). We encourage all institutions to download the appropriate year's HMDA DES to take full advantage of this preferred submission method.

If I download and install a new release of the FFIEC HMDA Data Entry software for any given year, will that override or wipe out any data/loans that have already been input and saved?

No. Downloading and installing a new release of the FFIEC HMDA Data Entry software will not delete, erase, or override any data that your institution may have previously input and saved to a previous release of the software. In addition, it is not necessary to uninstall the current release of the FFIEC HMDA Data Entry Software prior to downloading the updated one. The new release will capture any data that you previously entered in a previous release. However, institutions should always use the “Export for Other Purposes” option in the FFIEC HMDA Data Entry Software to create a backup copy of the data saved to a network drive or any accessible location. When a new release of the FFIEC HMDA software is made available, users who downloaded a previous release of the software for any reporting year should also download the new release for the current year of reporting.

Geocoding


Why do I have property location validity errors on my HMDA report if I used the FFIEC Geocoding System to obtain the property location information?

There are various reasons the FFIEC Geocoding System may not provide property location information for certain valid street addresses. One reason may be timing -- new developments, for instance, come into existence all the time and may not have been accounted for in the database release that is used in the FFIEC Geocoding System. When an exact street address cannot be found, use the Mapping feature. The FFIEC Geocoding System will display an area street map based on the combination of street address and zip code, OR street address, city and state. It is still possible that geocode information will not be found. In those cases, contact the U.S. Census Bureau (http://www.census.gov) for information on maps and other helpful resources.

If the FFIEC Geocoding System does not provide me with MSA-MD/State/County/Census Tract information, should I send in my HMDA submission without this information included?

Please do not send in your HMDA submission without property location information because you cannot find it using the FFIEC Geocoding System. A reporter must include valid property location information on each record of their HMDA report; otherwise, validity errors will occur on the report. If the FFIEC Geocoding System does not provide the information about the geographic information about the property location, there are several other resources that may be used:

Be reminded that it is the reporter's responsibility to exhaust all available resources in obtaining valid property location information.
