Subject

New Deal Programs

Description

The Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC) was created by Congress in 1938 though the Federal Crop Insurance Act. The FCIC was created to help farmers recover from the effects of the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl by offering insurance on crops to protect farmers against periods of low yield or low returns. The program persisted through the end of the Great Depression and is still in existence today. This document lists the quantity of expected crops that were eligible for insurance on Pallison Hanger's farm in 1943.
