The FHA is the Federal Housing Administration, which is a federal agency in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) - if your loan is an FHA-insured loan, it means it is backed by them. The lender provides all the loaned money; the FHA simply backs the loan by providing mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan. Low-income and moderate-income borrowers benefit from an FHA-insured loan; the purpose of the Federal Housing Administration is to assist credit-worthy potential buyers to meet expectations and requirements for lending organizations that they otherwise would not.

Down payments are often lower with an FHA loan despite using conventional market rates. The loan programs that the FHA provides are acutely beneficial to buyers with less starting income.
