In its twenty-third annual report on mortgage lending patterns, Changing Patterns XXIII, the Massachusetts Community & Banking Council (MCBC) offers information on patterns of mortgage lending in the City of Boston, in Greater Boston, and in Massachusetts.

This session will use the report to explore with a panel of experts why these patterns have emerged and allow participants to dig into the data and issues behind them to have an in-depth conversation on issues of racial and income disparities, homeownership barriers, and the potential solutions to emerging patterns of concern.

The report covers: 

  • The Level and Composition of Mortgage Lending
  • Borrower Race/Ethnicity and Income
  • Neighborhood Race/Ethnicity and Income
  • Denials of Mortgage Applications
  • Lender Activity
  • Legislative and Regulatory Developments

The report and supplemental materials can be viewed at
