As it is known the US experienced the Great Depression in 1929-1933. This period can be distinguished with high inflation, poverty, constantly rising unemployment, the foreclosure markets also experienced that crisis.

During the crisis government of the USA took a decision to found the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), officially it was opened in 1934. The main aims of US government in this situation are understandable. Firstly it was necessary task to improve the situation with problem loans; in the second place FHA was obliged to assist the development of mortgage markets. And eventually the foreclosure market of the United States of America lacked some novelty.

The housing program for WW II veterans was sponsored namely by Federal Housing Administration. It has to be noted that Federal Housing Administration preserved the average prices on real estate markets during 1970-1980, the period of another economical crisis in US. Now FHA is treated as one of the world largest mortgage insurers. Though FHA was established as governmental organization it inputs in its programs only with FHA own means.

Because of this fact FHA turned into a unique government agency just until Housing Urban Development (HUD) asked for support of taxpayers. This decision was based on Agency budget deficit, so that US government support appeared to be the just one possible solution. In order to deal with high risk clients and to promote its effectiveness in reaching main goals of agency, FHA created7set up a number of special projects, for instance the FHA Secure program. The objective of the program is to enable the clients to deposit financial means into FHA insured mortgages due to relatively low mortgage rates. This program results from the disability of FHA average client to obtain the private insurance policy and to cover the average mortgage rate.

Additionally FHA works only with such borrowers who were qualified by government of USA. Couple of years ago the Recovery and Reinvestment Act was signed, according to it 2008 Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and FHA debts limits were reinstated.
