The Legacy of the New Deal
FDR made it possible for many of our family members to survive during the Great Depression and to create New Deal treasures all over this nation that we are still using and enjoying today. You may not know what they are. It can include such things in your town, city, county or state like schools and other public buildings, parks, roads, bridges, cemeteries, swimming pools, water and sewer systems, rural electricity, murals, paintings, sculptures, and even symphonic orchestras. Many of today's legal rights for labor were established in the New Deal era. The FDIC protects your bank account, and Social Security is possibly critical to you and your family. Join the NNDPA and learn about these treasures. Help us preserve them by Joining and Donating:

We are a group of individuals, agencies, facilities and programs that organized in December 1998 to promote the identification, documentation, preservation and education of people about the New Deal visual and performing arts, literature, crafts, structures and environmental projects.

Our logo, which appears throughout the website, was created by Jim Pirkl of Albuquerque, N.M. and depicts so well the various segments of the New Deal projects that Americans worked together on between 1933-43 to save this nation. We are still reaping the benefits of their labors.
Hopefully by viewing this website, you will be desirous of joining us in learning more about preserving those beneficial New Deal treasures and also sharing your knowledge about the New Deal accomplishments from your family stories or your career experiences. We hope to hear from you.
