An FHA loan is backed by the Federal Housing Administration, a federal organization 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 make sure that the loan is secure in case the borrower doesn't pay their loan. Accessible to all homebuyers, FHA loan programs are built to help credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not have the qualifications for conventional loans.
Typically, a buyer has to pay less of a down payment on an FHA-insured loan, while the rates remain standard market rates. FHA loan programs are particularly beneficial to those buyers with less available cash.
