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-secured loan, it means it is underwritten by them. The lender provides all the loaned money; the FHA simply backs the loan through mortgage insurance in case the borrower does not pay off his or her loan. Low-income and moderate-income borrowers benefit from an FHA-secured financial transaction; the point of the Federal Housing Administration is to help credit-worthy consumers to meet expectations and requirements for lenders that they otherwise would not.
The rates on FHA loans are generally market rates, while down payment requirements are lower than for conventional loans. The loan programs that the FHA provides are acutely beneficial to consumers with less starting income.
