Home Loans

The data in this section are collected under the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA), which requires public reporting of home loan application data. Some lenders are exempt from reporting HMDA data, and therefore not all lending activity may be captured. HMDA data are available at the Census tract level, and the statistics here may reflect lending activity both on and near the reservation. Census tracts are included if they contain at least one housing unit on the reservation and relevant HMDA activity in 2013-2017. All figures below reflect data on first-lien, home-purchase loan applications. See About the Data. for additional information and definition of terms.
