An FHA loan is underwritten 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 money in the loan is provided by the FHA; what the FHA does is ensure that the loan is insured in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. The FHA and their loan programs are built to help low-to-moderate income purchasers help meet credit requirements if 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. FHA loan programs are particularly beneficial to those purchasers with less available cash.
