An FHA loan is underwritten 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 paid for in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. Low-income and moderate-income borrowers benefit from an FHA-backed financial transaction; the purpose of the Federal Housing Administration is to help credit-worthy consumers to meet expectations and requirements for lenders that they otherwise would not.

Down payments are often lower with an FHA loan despite using conventional market rates. Consumers with lower income or less starting money to put down on a financial transaction benefit the most from FHA loan programs.
