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 loan is an FHA loan, it means it is secured by them. The FHA does not loan money to borrowers, rather, it provides lending organizations with security through mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her financial obligations. Low-income and moderate-income homebuyers benefit from an FHA-insured loan; the purpose of the Federal Housing Administration is to assist credit-worthy consumers to meet expectations and necessities for lending agencies that they otherwise would not.
The rates on FHA loans are generally market rates, while down payment requirements are lower than for conventional loans. Buyers with lesser income or less starting funds to put down on a mortgage are assisted the most from Federal Housing Administration loan programs.
