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-secured loan, it means it is insured by them. None of the funds are provided by the FHA; what the FHA does is make sure that the loan is paid for in case the borrower doesn't pay their loan. Accessible to all consumers, FHA loan programs are created to assist credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not meet requirements 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 FHA provides are excessively beneficial to consumers with less starting capital.
