Government Documents - Independent Agencies, Boards, and Commissions: Civilian Conservation Corps

Overview of the publications of federal boards, commissions, and other bodies in the Government Documents Collection.

About the agency

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) began in 1937, succeeding the Emergency Conservation Work agency, which started in 1933. In 1939, the CCC became part of the Federal Security Agency. It was eliminated in 1943. The purpose of the CCC and its predecessors was to provide employment in forestry and conservation work for unemployed youth during the Great Depression.
