—Did You Know? —

Created in May 1935 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the WPA was the largest of his New Deal relief programs...
The WPA created jobs and provided income to many Idahoans during the Great Depression. The program funded thousands of pubic works projects such as highways, bridges, schools and municipal buildings, as well as numerous public art projects. Boise retains many buildings constructed through this program. The Boise Art Museum and the Ada County Courthouse are two exquisite examples.
When it was shut down by Congress in 1943, the WPA was the largest employer in the nation, second only to the U.S. Army.
