The FHA is the Federal Housing Administration, which is a federal organization in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) - if your financial transaction is an FHA loan, it means it is secured by them. No part of the loan is provided by the FHA; what the FHA does is ensure that the loan is paid for in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. Accessible to all consumers, FHA loan programs are formed to help credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not have the qualifications for conventional loans.

Typically, a buyer has to pay less of a down payment on an FHA-insured loan, while the rates remain standard market rates. Purchasers with lesser income or less starting money to use as a down-payment on a mortgage are assisted the most from FHA loan programs.
