and the companies publish the Language Access Plan. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises), in collaboration with the Federal Housing Finance Authority (FHFA), published a Language Access Multi-Year Plans (Plan) on 10 May that identify possible ways to address the barriers facing low level British speaking (LEP) borrower access to mortgages. Built on research and test in 2016 and 2017, the scheme was designed to help companies and FHFA identify the problems facing REP borrower throughout the funding lifecycle.

Among the main business and FHFA landmarks for 2018 and beyond are (i) the establishment of a clearing house with centralised resource, such as the translation of mortgages documentation; (ii) the establishment of a working group on linguistic accessibility; (iii) the development of a publication attached to the issue of preferred languages for applying for a single housing loan (URLA) (previously here represented by InfoBytes);

iv ) Develop a glossary of mortgages and property terminology; v) In order to supplement the Spanish translation of the URLA into other official EU currencies; and vi) Establish a voice line to help users quickly.

The CFPB creates HMDA and ECOA Safe Harbor for the new Fannie/Freddie application form.

CFPB released an approval measure in the Federal Register on 29 September that provides a secure haven under the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) and Regulation B for creditors using the Uniform Residential Loan Application (URLA) amended in August 2016 by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

In the approval measure of the Presidium it is stated that "it has been established that the respective URLA 2016 terminology meets the provisions of Regulation B", whether and how a believer may obtain information about the applicant's breed, colour, religious beliefs, nationality, gender, marital status and source of revenue as well as information about the applicant's partner or former partner.

On 28 October 2015, the Office modified Regulation C to oblige backed creditors to provide the possibility for backed creditors to personally identity themselves on the basis of different ethnic and racial groups with effect from 1 January 2018.

CFPB states in the Federal Register's Announcement that before 1 January 2108, the request to claimants to personally identity themselves by the degraded category would not have been admissible under the limitations of Regulation B in the search for information about an applicant's ethnic origin, racial or other features. This approval measure allows creditors to use the non-aggregated category of ethics and races for requests made in 2017 without infringing Regulation B. It states that if a creditor chooses to gather information on the non-aggregated category in 2017, for requests completed before 1 January 2018, the creditor must submit the information to the Presidium using only the actual non-aggregated category of ethics and races.

When a creditor adopts definitive measures in 2018 or later in response to an application submitted in 2017, he may decide to provide information using either the actual aggregation or the new discoaggregated category.
