Notes The Works Progress Administration (WPA) was a federal agency created by executive order in 1935 that provided employment to United States citizens through public works projects and educational programs. Most expenditures went to the construction of highways, roads, parks, public buildings, dams, and sewers. Other programs included literacy projects, vocational education, historical records surveys, and the arts. The Works Progress Administration was renamed the Work Projects Administration in 1937. Congress discontinued the agency in 1943.
