The National League for Civic Improvement was established in 1900, and merged with the American Park and Outdoor Association in 1904 to form the American Civic Association. In 1935, this organization merged with the National Conference on City Planning to form the American Planning and Civic Association, which was later joined by the National Conference on City Planning. The American Planning and Civic Association later merged with Action, Inc., the State Urban Action Center, and Urban America, forming the National Urban Coalition.
