As it is known the United States of America passed through the Great Depression in 1929-1933. These four years will be always remembered with high level of unemployment, rising inflation and poverty all over the country, the foreclosure markets also went through that crisis.

Within these years American authorities took a decision to set up the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), officially it was established in 1934. The main aims of American Congress in this situation are obvious. Firstly it was required to solve the situation with problem loans; secondly newly created organization had to contribute into the evolution of housing markets. And finally the foreclosure market of the America required novation.

The program for World War II veterans was sponsored precisely by Federal Housing Administration. It is important to underline that Federal Housing Administration kept the average prices on real estate markets in 1970-1980, the period of economic recession. Today FHA is treated as one of the world largest mortgage insurers. Despite the fact that FHA is functioning in form of governmental organization it funds its programs only with FHA own financial means.

Because of this fact FHA turned into a unique government agency just before Housing Urban Development (HUD) applied for aid of taxpayers. It happened due to Agency budget deficit, so that US government support became the just one possible way out of the situation. In order to operate with high risk clients and to raise its effectiveness in reaching main goals of agency, FHA created7set up some special programs, for instance the FHA Secure program. The objective of the program is to enable the clients to deposit means into FHA insured mortgages taking into account low mortgage rates. This project results from the disability of FHA average client to obtain the private insurance policy and to pay the average mortgage rate.

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