An FHA loan is backed by the Federal Housing Administration, a federal agency that is a part of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The FHA does not loan money to borrowers, rather, it provides lending agencies with safety with mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. The FHA and their loan programs are designed to benefit low-to-moderate income buyers 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. FHA loan programs are incredibly beneficial to those consumers with less available cash.
