Learn About FHA Loans and How You Can Qualify
What is the FHA?
Last modified: January 30, 2023
The Federal Housing Administration is an agency of the federal government. The FHA insures private loans issued for new and existing housing, and for approved programs for home repairs. The FHA was created by Congress in 1934, and in 1965 became part of the Department of Housing and Urban Development's Office of Housing.
The FHA's mission in the present day includes offering to help borrowers get the amounts they qualify for, and to assist lenders by reducing the risk of issuing loans. To get situation-specific information and advice on how you might be able to take advantage of an FHA-insured loan, you'll need to contact an FHA lender to get started. You can search for an FHA lender near you at HUD.
