FDR put into place a new program on April 5, 1933 known as the Civilian Conservation Corps which was intended to help single young men and to conserve the nations national resources.
The CCC helped the nation by providing jobs to 3,000,000 men. They also helped the environment by performing various tasks such as planting trees, building flood barriers, fighting forest fires, and maintaining forest roads and trails.
The CCC's funding was terminated by the government on June 30, 1942. This program lasted nine years but its legacy has continued on today as it has helped with roads, bridges, trails and parks in the United States today.
