An FHA loan is secured by the Federal Housing Administration, a federal organization that is a part of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The lending organization provides all the finances; the FHA simply insures the loan through mortgage insurance in case the borrower does not pay off his or her loan. The FHA and their loan programs are created to aid low-to-moderate income consumers help meet credit expectations if they otherwise would not.

Typically, a buyer has to pay less of a down payment on an FHA-insured loan, while the rates remain standard market rates. The loan programs that the FHA provides are excessively helpful to consumers with less starting income.
