    applauding their good fortune

    During a speech in Iowa City, Hopkins announced that the government would sponsor a national theater and other arts projects under the WPA. Before long it had painters, sculptors, musicians and composers, actors and stagehands and playwrights and writers all around the country applauding their good fortune...

    Does this mean that such people under WPA wished their good fortune or the good fortune of WPA? Does "their" refer to people or WPA?

    I am not a teacher

    No,it means they were grateful for what they have received.Feeling how lucky they are to be able to take advantage of this sponsorship.
    Their means those painters, sculptors, musicians and composers, actors and stagehands and playwrights and writers all around the country who were benefited from the sponsorship given by the W.P.A.

    But again I am not a teacher.
