History of FERA
• Originally the ERA started by Hoover
• ERA gave loans to states to operate relief
  pumps-every state had one. -New York had
  TERA
• Result of FERA
• Later changed to WPA
                   TERA
• Set up in 1933
• Led by Harry Hopkins, an important advisor to
  Gov. Franklin D. Roosevelt.
• Roosevelt asked for FERA so as to give the
  states funds for the same emergency purpose
• Choose trusted advisor Harry Hopkins to lead
  FERA along with the CCC
FERA-Main Goal
• To create jobs
• Raised self-esteem
• To relieve household unemployment
Because of an oncoming dreaded winter in 33-34, they spent 400
million on the CWA.
             Finishing Touch
• Still high unemployment
• Not-so-great public welfare

Led to the termination of FERA.

FERA was soon replaceed by the WPA and the
SSA
           Success of Failure?
It wasn't a complete fail-20 million people got
work

It wasn't a complete win because it gave out a
total of 3.1 billion dollars between when it
started, (May 1933) and when it ended,
(December 1935) and there was still high
unemployment.
