If your house loan is FHA approved, that means that it has been secured by the FHA, which is underneath the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). No part of the loan is provided by the FHA; what the FHA does is make sure that the mortgage is paid for in case the borrower doesn't pay their loan. Applicable to all purchasers, FHA loan programs are created 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. Buyers with lower income or less starting capital to put down on a financial transaction are helped the most from FHA loan programs.
