The FERA was originally created by Herbert Hoover in 1932, before Roosevelt renamed it within his first hundred days as president. However, the administration was replaced just three years later in 1935 by the Works Progress Administration. The idea of the FERA was to distribute loans to states in order for them to create programs that would give jobs to poor. Fera distributed more than 3 billion dollars in order to provide more than 30 million people.


While FERA did create jobs, a vast majority of those affected were left without jobs in poverty. (Millions) Thus, FERA was branded a failure, ousted in three years and replaced by far more successful programs that remain to this day.

Work opportunities were sufficiently diversified to give relief workers jobs in their previous line of work. The working conditions and wages also had to be the same as their old ones. The point of the FERA was to distribute loans to states in order to create porgrams to give jobs to the poor. Plan for workers: 1) Planning' 2) Public Health, welfare and recreation; 3) Education arts and research.
