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-insured loan, it means it is backed by them. The FHA does not provide funds to borrowers, rather, it provides lending organizations with safety by offering mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her financial obligations. Low-income and moderate-income homebuyers benefit from an FHA-secured loan; the purpose of the Federal Housing Administration is to aid credit-worthy potential buyers to meet expectations and requirements for lenders 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. Those with lesser income or less starting capital to put down on a mortgage are assisted the most from Federal Housing Administration loan programs.
