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 financial transaction is an FHA-insured loan, it means it is underwritten by them. The lending company provides all the finances; the FHA simply backs the transaction through mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan. Accessible to all purchasers, FHA loan programs are made to aid credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not meet requirements 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 useful to those homebuyers with less available funding.
