Administrative History

The Civilian Conservation Corps was a public work relief program established as part of the New Deal in 1937. It provided employment and vocational training for unemployed youths and, to a lesser extent, for war veterans and Indians, through conservation and natural resources development work, and beginning in May 1940, defense work on military reservations and forest protection. It was abolished by the Labor-Federal Security Appropriation Act (56 Stat. 569) on July 2, 1942.
