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-insured loan, it means it is backed by them. The lender provides all the finances; the FHA simply insures the loan with mortgage insurance in case the borrower does not pay off his or her loan. Low-income and moderate-income borrowers benefit from an FHA-secured loan; the point of the Federal Housing Administration is to cooperate with credit-worthy buyers to meet expectations and qualifications for lending agencies 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 helpful to consumers with less starting capital.
