Government-backed home loans and mortgage assistance
If you are looking to buy a home, a government-backed home loan or a mortgage assistance program could help.
The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) manages the FHA loan program. It helps buyers by insuring their loans so lenders can give them lower down payments and closing costs.
FHA loan eligibility
In general, your credit score does not need to be high. But the home must be within FHA loan limits depending on its location.
You must qualify for a loan with an FHA-approved lender.
