An FHA loan is backed 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 funds are provided by the FHA; what the FHA does is make sure that the mortgage is paid for in case the borrower doesn't pay their loan. Available to all consumers, FHA loan programs are designed to assist credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not have the qualifications for conventional loans.

Down payments are often lower with an FHA loan despite using conventional market rates. Those with lower income or less starting capital to use as a down-payment on a mortgage are assisted the most from FHA loan programs.
