The Works Progress Administration was the most significant program of the New Deal in terms of providing Americans with jobs. Over three million Americans were provided with jobs, such as road and building construction, along with many more.
The Civil Works Administration was created under the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FEMA). Despite being a temporary program, within two years, CWA workers had created or repaired 12 million feet of sewer pipe, 255,000 miles of roads, 40,000 schools, and 3,700 playgrounds.
The Civilian Conservation Corporation was a New Deal program for young men aged 17-28. These men were provided with shelter, food, and a small wage in exchange for labor related to irrigation, flood control, structural improvements, and forest fire prevention.
