The Resettlement Administration was a Federal agency that was an independent entity from April 1935 to December 1936. Consolidating earlier New Deal programs, the Resettlement Administration was intended to assist farmers and farm workers by helping them obtain housing and loans, and by renewing agricultural land that had been damaged by erosion, pollution, or other factors. In 1937, the Resettlement Administration was merged into the Farm Security Administration.
