The Living New Deal

The New Deal left a mark on cities and rural areas across the United States via a number of federal work projects led by agencies including the Works Project Administration (WPA), the Public Works Administration (PWA), the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), and more.The Living New Deal, a non-profit organization with support from the University of California, Berkeley's Department of Geography, documents the lasting impact of these projects across the country today. Visitors can explore these projects, which number well over 10,000, via an interactive map; projects may also be browsed by State, Category (e.g. Art, Forestry and Agriculture), New Deal Agency, or Artist. Each project entry includes a short description accompanied by photographs, exact location information, and source notes. This extensive collection allows visitors to learn about New Deal treasures in their own backyard. In addition, The Living New Deal offers an extensive encyclopedia of information related to the New Deal, including a timeline and short biographies of key figures. Educators and researchers will find links to additional resources of interest, including lesson plans and oral histories, under Resources.
