An FHA loan is insured by the Federal Housing Administration, a federal organization that is a part of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The FHA does not loan funds to borrowers, rather, it provides lending organizations with protection through mortgage insurance in case the borrower does not pay his or her financial obligations. Available to all buyers, FHA loan programs are made to assist credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not meet requirements 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. The loan programs that the FHA offers are excessively helpful to purchasers with less starting income.
