New Deal built hundreds of thousands of public works of all kinds in every state, county and territory of the United States, and most are still in use today. Our goal is to inventory and map all of them and to involve Americans in a collective rediscovery of what the New Deal did between 1933 and 1942 to extricate the economy from the Great Depression, provide work and hope for millions, and lay the foundation for postwar prosperity.
