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 loan is an FHA loan, it means it is underwritten by them. The FHA does not loan money to borrowers, rather, it provides lending organizations with protection through mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. Accessible to all consumers, FHA loan programs are made to assist credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not have the qualifications for conventional loans.

The rates on FHA loans are generally market rates, while down payment requirements are lower than for conventional loans. The loan programs that the Federal Housing Administration offers are extremely useful to buyers with less starting capital.
