My life is so much better thanks to the TVA. I've got a job and a house with electricity
The Tennessee Valley Authority or the TVA, was established on May 18, 1933. It was primarily based in the Tennessee Valley, which consisted of Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi.
Well on one hand, they did offer jobs for people. But on the other hand it still does exist and put in several revolutionary practices.
The Tennessee Valley was prone to dealing with floods, deforestation, and eroded land. The TVA was assigned to reduce these problems by teaching better farming methods, replanting trees, and building dams
Our life is so much better
The TVA also provided the Tennessee Valley electricity through dams. In order to keep prices affordable by finding out how much money was needed for electricity. They would also provided low cost housing and improved navigation
The TVA falls into the Reform category of the three R's. They were mostly focused on conservation, keeping electricity cheap and provide housing for people. It is also considered the most ambitious of the New Deal programs as the government has never really done anything like this before.
The TVA was overall a success, as it provided 2.5 million people with improved lives with better homes and jobs. However, the TVA has been criticized for displacing families and even entire towns.
The Tennessee Valley Authority is a program that still exists today. The TVA cooperated with several federal agencies the Civilian Conservation Corps, the Army Corps of Engineers, and the Soil Conservation Service.
