This page was reviewed but not written by the grant investigator. CaRLA staff also reviewed this page prior to publication.

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $340,000 over two years to the California Renters Legal Advocacy and Education Fund (CaRLA) for general support. CaRLA intends to continue pursuing litigation, advocating against regulatory barriers to building housing in the San Francisco Bay Area, and developing educational resources.

This follows our June 2016 grant and falls within our focus area of land use reform.

Update: In November 2019, $60,000 of unspent funds were returned by CaRLA. The “grant amount” above has been updated to reflect this.
