Works Projects Administration recently named the Work Progress Administration or WPA, was the largest and most determined American New Deal agency. It employed millions of unemployed people (mostly unskilled men) to carry out public works projects, including the construction of public buildings, roads, and city murals.

The WPA only lasted until 1943 because it was supposed to bring America out of the Great Depression, but it just increased America's spending habits. The WPA employed many Americans but this was not effective so after June 30, 1943, the WPA ceased to exists. The administration only lasted 8 years before it was gone.
