In the world of financial legislation, few regulations are as pivotal to small businesses, especially those owned by women and minorities, as Section 1071 of the Dodd-Frank Act. With a mission to illuminate the lending landscape, this section serves as a beacon for transparency, fair lending practices, and addressing credit challenges.
Section 1071 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (commonly referred to as Dodd-Frank) is designed to aid in understanding the ways in which small businesses and women- or minority-owned businesses access credit. This provision mandates that financial institutions collect and report certain data regarding the lending they do to these types of businesses. Here’s a breakdown of some of the key points related to Dodd-Frank 1071:
The primary purpose of Section 1071 is to: Facilitate enforcement of fair lending laws and enable communities, governmental entities, and creditors to identify business and community development needs and opportunities for women-owned, minority-owned, and small businesses. Produce data that can be used to understand and address the credit needs of these businesses.
Financial institutions are required to collect and report certain pieces of information about loan applications from women-owned, minority-owned, and small businesses. This includes data such as: The number and amount of loan applications. The type and purpose of the loan or credit. The location of the business. The race, sex, and ethnicity of the principal owners of the business.
While Section 1071 mandates the collection of this data, it also includes provisions to ensure that applicants’ identities are protected. It ensures that information collected and maintained doesn’t allow for the identification of individual business loan applicants.
The responsibility for developing regulations that enforce Section 1071 is with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). This means that the CFPB provides guidance and clarifications about how institutions should comply with these reporting requirements.
The data collected under Section 1071 is intended to be made available to the public, with exceptions for individually identifiable information. This will provide a tool for regulators, policymakers, and the public to analyze the lending landscape and ensure that discrimination does not occur in business lending.
