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). The lending organization takes care of all the loaned money; the FHA simply backs the transaction through mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan. Low-income and moderate-income consumers benefit from an FHA-backed financial transaction; the purpose of the Federal Housing Administration is to cooperate with credit-worthy consumers to meet expectations and qualifications for lending agencies that they otherwise would not.

The rates on FHA loans are generally market rates, while down payment requirements are lower than for conventional loans. Those with lesser income or less starting funds to put down on a financial transaction benefit the most from Federal Housing Administration loan programs.
