An FHA loan is underwritten by the Federal Housing Administration, a federal agency within the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The FHA does not provide funds to borrowers, rather, it provides lending agencies with security by offering mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. The FHA and their loan programs are created to help low-to-moderate income homebuyers help meet credit qualifications if they otherwise would not.

Down payments are often lower with an FHA loan despite using conventional market rates. FHA loan programs are particularly beneficial to those consumers with less accumulated starting capital.
