HMDA File Serving

The HMDA Platform serves a number of files including:

  1. Documentation
  2. Modified LAR
  3. Institution Register Summaries
  4. Dynamic National Loan-Level Dataset
  5. Snapshot National Loan-Level Dataset
  6. Disclosure Reports
  7. Aggregate Reports
  8. Rate Spread Data

The HMDA Platform serves these files in three seperate ways, through the HMDA File api, Githhub, and S3.

The HMDA File api is used to serve the Modfied LAR and Institution Register Summaries. Github is used to serve documentation in the form of markdown files which are formatted by the HMDA-Frontend. S3 is used to serve all other files


The HMDA File API is used for accessing the Modified LAR and Institution Register Summaries.

Get Institution Register Summary (IRS)

The IRS is a summary of a institution's HMDA submission to be used by the filing institution to confirm that they are submitting the correct data.

As such, access to each IRS is restricted to users associated with the institution. Users must be authenticated using the HMDA authentication system and include a bearer token with their request.

(More information on authentication can be found above in the Authorization section in the HMDA Platform Filing API section of these docs)

HeadersAuthorization: Bearer {{access_token}}
