Bringing back the WPA (Work Projects Administration) in 2010! " Kickstarter
"About this project We are bringing back the WPA (Work Projects Administration), because the government hasn't. We will open two WPA offices - one in a rural hamlet, and one in an urban center - for recovery by the communities themselves!
We have secured offices in the rural hamlet of Wassaic, New York, and the urban center of Jamaica, Queens, and are finalists for a commission to open a third office in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Since the government hasnt brought the WPA back, we will!"
