During 2008, lenders denied about 32 percent of loan applications in the Sacramento region, way up from the 16 percent denied in 2005 during the housing boom, according to data released by the federal government earlier this week. By far, the most applications denied last year were in poorer sections of the region that relied heavily on subprime lending during the boom.
