The FHA is the Federal Housing Administration, which is a federal agency in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) - if your loan is an FHA-insured loan, it means it is underwritten by them. No part of the loan is provided by the FHA; what the FHA does is make sure that the loan is secure in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. The FHA and their loan programs are designed to help low-to-moderate income buyers help meet credit expectations if 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. FHA loan programs are extremely helpful to those buyers with less accessible funding.
