FDR Takes Charge

The US government has come up with a plan to get the US back on its feet after the Great Depression and that plan is called the New Deal. The New Deal includes domestic programs, laws and executive orders passed by the president, Franklin Roosevelt. The New Deal is supposed to help the government with relief, recovery, and reform also known as the 3 Rs. It will help relieve the poor, especially the unemployed, recover the damaged economy, and reform the system that the US has for finances. With the New Plan, the US can get back on track and make up for what it lost in the Great Depression.

National Recovery Administration (NRA)

The National Recovery Administration is a prime New Deal agency established by U.S. president Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR). The goal is to eliminate "cut-throat competition" by bringing industry, labor and government together to create codes of "fair practices" and set prices

Civil Works Administration (CWA)

  1. The CWA was created by Franklin D. Roosevelt on November 8th. Itis another job creation program that has been created to help out the many, many people who lost their jobs during the Great Depression. It's goal is to make as many labor jobs as it can as quickly as it can to help improve America's broken economy. Unfortunately the jobs are temporary for the winter time, but they are still helping the millions of people who lost their jobs.

Works Progress Administration (WPA)

The Work Projects Administration; WPA is the largest and most ambitious American New Deal agency, employing millions of unemployed people (mostly unskilled men) to carry out public works projects including the construction of public buildings and roads. In a much smaller but more famous project, Federal Project Number One, the WPA employed musicians, artists, writers, actors and directors in large arts, drama, media, and literacy projects.

Social Security Act (SSA)

The Social Security Act is an attempt to limit what we see as dangers in the modern American life, including old age, poverty, unemployment, and the burdens on widows and fatherless children.

Emergency Relief Appropriations Act

President Franklin D. Roosevelt authorizes almost $5 million to implement work-relief programs on this day in 1935. Hoping to lift the country out of the crippling Great Depression, Congress is allowing the president to use the funds at his discretion.

With all of these new deals, Franklin D. Roosevelt is sure to make the United States a better place. Remember, the New Deal is supposed to help the government with relief, recovery, and reform also known as the 3 R’s. So now your only job is to agree!
