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-secured loan, it means it is insured by them. The FHA does not loan funds to borrowers, rather, it provides lending agencies with security by offering mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. Available to all homebuyers, FHA loan programs are made to help credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not meet requirements for conventional loans.

Down payments are often lower with an FHA loan despite using conventional market rates. The loan programs that the Federal Housing Administration offers are incredibly useful to purchasers with less starting income.
