The REA today was reformed/re-organized within the United States Department of Agriculture. They were given the authorizaation to fiance the formation of telephone cooperatives, which means they were to extend the reach of telephones in rural areas. They did this up until 1994, where Congress created the Rural Utilities Service (R.U.S.). They took over the responsiblities of the R.E.A. 

The Rural Electrication Administration (or REA) was created back in 1935 after Franklin D. Roosevelt  issued Executive Order 7037.  Then, in 1936, Congress passed the Rural Electrification Act. The administartions main purpose is to provide electricity to unpopulated rural areas for farmers, they provide federal loans to build things like ultility poles and power houses. The administration is technically still around today, in 1939 the organization was reformed into a division of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture.
