An FHA loan is backed by the Federal Housing Administration, a federal agency that is a part of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). None of the funds are provided by the FHA; what the FHA does is ensure that the mortgage is secure in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. Low-income and moderate-income borrowers benefit from an FHA-secured financial transaction; the purpose of the Federal Housing Administration is to aid credit-worthy potential buyers to meet expectations and necessities for lending organizations that they otherwise would not.

Typically, a buyer has to pay less of a down payment on an FHA-insured loan, while the rates remain standard market rates. Consumers with lesser income or less starting funds to use as a down-payment on a loan are helped the most from Federal Housing Administration loan programs.
