Read about these programs

Agricultural Adjustment Act and the Civilian Conservation Corp

    The Agricultural Adjustment Act (AAA) is a United States federal law of the New Deal era which reduces agricultural production by paying farmers subsidies not to plant on part of their land and to kill off excess livestock. Its purpose is to reduce crop surplus and therefore effectively raise the value of crops. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) is a public work relief program that operated in the United States for unemployed, unmarried men from relief families as part of the New Deal.


Civil Works Administration, National Recovery Administration, and Works Progress Administration

    The Civil Works Administration (CWA) is a U.S. job creation program established by the New Deal during the Great Depression to rapidly create manual labor jobs for millions of unemployed people. 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. The Works Progress Administration (renamed in 1939 as 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.
