An FHA loan is underwritten by the Federal Housing Administration, a federal organization within 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 make sure that the loan is paid for in case the borrower doesn't pay their loan. Low-income and moderate-income borrowers benefit from an FHA-insured loan; the purpose of the Federal Housing Administration is to assist credit-worthy consumers to meet expectations and qualifications 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 use as a down-payment on a mortgage benefit the most from Federal Housing Administration loan programs.
