An FHA loan is underwritten by the Federal Housing Administration, a federal agency within the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The lending organization takes care of all the loaned money - the FHA simply secures the loan by providing mortgage insurance in case the borrower does not pay off his or her loan. The FHA and their loan programs are formed to help low-to-moderate income consumers by easing credit expectations. Remember, the FHA differs from the VA appraiser panel in that the lender can pick the appraisal company.

Down payments are often lower with an FHA loan despite using conventional market rates. FHA loan programs are particularly useful to those consumers with less available funding.
