As it is known the USA experienced the Great Depression in 1929-1933. This time will be always remembered with high inflation, poverty, constantly rising unemployment, the foreclosure markets also suffered from that crisis.

It was time when the government of America got an idea to create the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), officially it was created in 1934. The main aims of US government in this case are easy to understand. First and foremost it was needed to solve the situation with bad home loans; secondly newly created organization had to support the development of foreclosure markets. And eventually the foreclosure market of the USA demanded novelty.

The housing program for World War II veterans was financed precisely by FHA. It should be stressed that Federal Housing Administration kept the average prices on real estate markets within 1970-1980, the years of recession in American economic. Today FHA exists as one of the world biggest mortgage insurers. Though FHA is functioning in form of governmental administration it inputs in its programs only with FHA own financial means.

Owing this small detail FHA became a unique government agency just before Housing Urban Development (HUD) asked for support of taxpayers. It happened as a result of Agency budget deficit, so that help from Congress became the only one possible solution. In order to work with high risk mortgages and to promote its performance in reaching main goals of agency, FHA created7set up several special projects, as an example we can name the FHA Secure program. The idea of this project is to to permit the clients to deposit means into FHA insured mortgages due to low mortgage rates. The described Secure program results from the incapacity of FHA average client to buy the private insurance policy and to pay the average mortgage rate.

Besides Federal Housing Administration works only with such borrowers who were qualified by government of USA. Not so long time ago the Recovery and Reinvestment Act was signed, according to it 2008 Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and FHA loan limits had been reinstated.
