Impact Today
The NYA does not exist today. It was transferred in 1939 to the Federal Security Agency and was placed in 1942 under the War Manpower Commission. Then it was closed in late 1943.



- Congress refused to continue funding the program and abolished the NYA in 1943.
"I have determined that we shall do something for the Nation's unemployed youth because we can ill afford to lose the skill and energy of these young men and women. They must have their chance in school, their turn as apprentices and their opportunity for jobs—a chance to work and earn for themselves." -Franklin D. Roosevelt
With the NYA people started making money again and were able to buy food and clothes and pay for a house.
