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 financial transaction is an FHA loan, it means it is underwritten by them. The lending organization takes care of all the loaned money; the FHA simply insures the loan with mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan. The FHA and their loan programs are created to help low-to-moderate income homebuyers help meet credit qualifications if they otherwise would not.

Down payments are often lower with an FHA loan despite using conventional market rates. FHA loan programs are incredibly beneficial to those purchasers with less accessible funding.
