Everybody knows that the US experienced the Great Depression in 1929-1933. This time can be characterized with decreasing income, deflation, unemployment, the foreclosure markets also went through that crisis.

Within these years American authorities got an idea to form the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), officially it was established in 1934. The main aspirations of US authorities in this case are easy to understand. First of all it was needed to fix the situation with problem loans; secondly newly created organization was obliged to maintain the growth of real estate markets. And eventually the foreclosure market of the United States of America required novation.

The project for World War the Second veterans was financed namely by Federal Housing Administration. It has to be noted that Federal Housing Administration kept the average prices on housing market during 1970-1980, the time of recession in American economic. Now FHA is represented as one of the world biggest mortgage insurers. Even so FHA was created as governmental organization it finances its activities only with FHA own profit.

Due to this fact FHA was supposed to be a unique government organization just until Housing Urban Development (HUD) asked for support of taxpayers. The reason for it lied in Agency budget deficit, so that financial support from government appeared to be the only one possible decision. In order to deal with high risk debts and to raise its effectiveness in reaching main goals of agency, FHA created7set up some special projects, for example the FHA Secure program. The idea of this project is to enable the clients to deposit money into FHA insured mortgages because of not high mortgage rates. This program results from the incapacity of FHA average client to obtain the private insurance policy and to pay the average mortgage rate.

Further agency deals only with such lenders who were qualified by government of USA. In 2009 the Recovery and Reinvestment Act was signed, according to it 2008 Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and FHA debts limits were reinstated.
