The Archives is proud to present its newest online exhibit, Works Projects in Portland, 1930-1940: Creating Jobs and Building Community. This exhibit highlights the public works programs that began in the 1930s and improved roads, enhanced parks, and provided recreation opportunities for the public. The various public works projects eased unemployment and had long lasting effects, establishing many of the parks and road systems we use today. Works Projects in Portland provides insight into the projects funded by the Civic Emergency Relief program, the Civil Works Administration, the Civil State Emergency Administration, and the Works Progress Administration.
