MCBC’s Mortgage Lending Roundtable


Elliot Schmiedl, Director of Homeownership, Massachusetts Housing Partnership

The Mortgage Lending Roundtable brings together financial institutions, housing advocates, public officials and others to work to expand home ownership opportunities for low- and moderate-income homebuyers and to sustain home ownership in low- and moderate-income neighborhoods.

The Mortgage Lending Roundtable hosts open meetings throughout the year on a variety of topics from downpayment assistance programs to mortgage lending trends in the Commonwealth. Membership in MCBC is encouraged, but not a requirement to attend.

In November 2018, the Mortgage Lending Committee released Changing Patterns XXV, MCBC’s annual report on mortgage lending patterns in the city of Boston, Greater Boston and Massachusetts, as well as in thirty-six large cities and towns. The report includes 2017 data on lending by race and income and the comparative performance of major type of lenders. In addition to the data in the report, MCBC is also providing data on all Massachusetts cities and towns in a set of on-line tables. Both the report and the on-line tables are available in the Publications section of this website.
