The Public Works Administration was Authorized by the National Industrial Recovery Act in 1933. This was set up by Franklin D. Roosevelt, when the PWA was still around it spent $4 billion more than 70% on educational buildings, 65% on new courthouses, 35% of public health, and 10% on new roads, bridges, and subways. When the war started to occur the PWA was over time liquidated. The result of PWA was to complete more than 34,000 heavy construction projects. This project also created work for many skilled unemployed workers. This is the description of the Public Works Administration.
The End of the PWA
Toward the end of The Public Works Administration, the FDR had moved industry because of the war production. When moving toward the war production they abandoned the opposition to stop the spending. The war had a lot to do with ending the PWA, becauseThen after that, the PWA became irrelevant and was abolished in 1941. This is how The Public Works Administration ended.
