2024 FHA Limits

Lending Limits for FHA Loans in Your State

The FHA has a maximum loan amount that it will insure, which is known as the FHA lending limit. These loan limits are calculated and updated annually and are influenced by the conventional loan limits set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The type of home, such as single-family or duplex, can also affect these numbers.

For 2024, the FHA floor was set at $498,257 for single-family home loans. This minimum lending amount covers most U.S. counties. The FHA ceiling represents the maximum loan amount and is illustrated in the table below.
