By making this program, I can understand that the Great Depression really cased the economy to go down . If the Public works Administration program donated money for the construction of schools, hospitals and public buildings then it must of have been worse .

Abolished : June of 1941 . . .

when Franklin D. Roosevelt moved industry, Public Works Administration became irrelevant.
