The program was started to fund and support authors and writers during the Great Depression. This program was made to relief those affected by this crisis. It was mainly used to help authors publish their books. This program helped mainly Americans during these rough times. 

Throughout out the lifetime of the FWP, it faced series of criticism, mainly from conservatives.  The support for the program decreased and finally came to an end in 19-39.
