National Resources Planning Board
(NRPB)
   The NRPB was created in September 1939 and abolished in July 1943. It succeeded the National Planning Board established under the National Industrial Recovery Act in 1933. The board’s function was to develop planned proposals for the exploitation, development, and use of national resources. They established committees to look at industrial resources, transportation, energy, water use, land use, and the structure and workings of the economy. From 1939 to 1943, the NRPB was involved in planning for war and also for the postwar. Its report on postwar planning in 1943 called for a widespread program for social reform, and it came under increasing congressional criticism, which led to its demise in 1943. Some of its proposals found fruit in the G.I. Bill of Rights and the Employment Act of 1946.
