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 loan, it means it is insured by them. The FHA does not loan money to borrowers, rather, it provides lenders with safety by offering mortgage insurance in case the borrower does not pay his or her financial obligations. Applicable to all buyers, FHA loan programs are formed to aid 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. FHA loan programs are extremely helpful to those homebuyers with less accumulated cash.
