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 secured by them. None of the money in the loan is provided by the FHA; what the FHA does is ensure that the mortgage is secure in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. Applicable to all purchasers, FHA loan programs are built to help credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not have the qualifications for conventional loans.

Down payments are often lower with an FHA loan despite using conventional market rates. FHA loan programs are incredibly helpful to those homebuyers with less accessible cash.
