  • Federal Energency Relief Act
  • I'm fighting a forest fire.
  • I'm cleaning this window.
  • The Federal Emergency Relief Act (FERA), created in May 1933, was headed by Harry L. Hopkins. This act spent 3 billion dollars while aiming at creating work relief programs to decrease unemployment and relieve people from poverty.
  • We are group farming.
  • One of the programs created was the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The CCC was a work relief program that gave jobs to young men. The jobs included reforestation, firefighting, and other occupations.
  • We all got jobs immediately because of FERA.
  • Another program was the Civil Works Administration (CWA). The CWA quickly created manual labor jobs for the unemployed people during the harsh winter from 1933 to 1934. These jobs included improving and building infrastructure among others.
  • We all lost our jobs though.
  • A third program created under FERA was the Farm Security Administration (FSA). This administration helped to resettle farmers whom were affected by the Dust Bowl in the 1930's. The FSA purchased the farmers' lands and placed them on group farms.
  • FERA gave the common man relief as the CCC gave the people jobs immediately that were insecure, not permanant, and the CWA gave people temporary jobs for the winter. Also, the FSA gave farmers a solution that would not work in the long run.
  • The act was a failure as it didn't give long term benefits, ending in 1935. It was replaced by the Work Projects Administration (WPA) that also improved infrastructure while spending $11 dollars and giving 9 million people jobs. The WPA was also removed in 1943.
