The following is a brief history of America's Rural Rehabilitation Corporations and the Founding of the National Association of Rural Rehabilitation Corporations taken from the State-to-State Awareness Notebooks.This information is available in its original format in a Word Document for saving and printing.Rejecting proposals to create new federal bureaucracies to provide assistance to the masses as simply too slow, Congress approved a joint federal-state relief effort.An appropriation of 0 million was set aside for the relief effort, with 0 million of that money designated for use by the states.Originally home to 300 families, it also served at one time as the childhood home to singer Johnny Cash.Florida’s Cherry Lake Colony—approximately 18,000 acres—set up a canning plant (American Handcraft Products) as well as 2640 acres of community farm.However, the needs of the rural areas were obviously different from their urban counterparts.The rural areas wanted a rehabilitation program rather than a relief program.
These camps were intended to give the families, made homeless by the economic catastrophe of that day, a place to stay until times improved. However, segregating the rural and urban programs still did not allow rural rehabilitation programs to reach their full potential.
Forty-five rural rehabilitation corporations were formed by 1935.
Only Connecticut, Delaware, and Rhode Island did not form such a corporation; although the corporations formed in Maryland and Massachusetts never functioned.
When Congress convened in 1933, the first order of business was to work with the new Roosevelt administration to craft a program which would aid the millions of Americans displaced by the Great Depression.
At that time, the federal bureaucracy was small and largely concerned with minor industry regulations, complicating this task to a degree we cannot understand today.
