An FHA loan is backed by the Federal Housing Administration, a federal agency that is a part of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). No part of 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 designed to aid low-to-moderate income homebuyers help meet credit qualifications if they otherwise would not.
Down payments are often lower with an FHA loan despite using conventional market rates. FHA loan programs are incredibly beneficial to those buyers with less accessible cash.
