Work Relief – Chester NH

Description

A 1937 municipal report describes the usefulness of WPA projects to the city:

“We have had several employed on W.P.A. projects in nearby towns which has been much help to all. As we locally can not furnish from our relief rolls a sufficient number of men who can qualify for this federal work and thereby acquire a project of our own we are appreciative of what has been done for Chester through this out of town work. We are asking for $1,200.00 this year as we are not sure what the state will do following June as the present relief law goes out of existence at that time.”
