Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $2,600,000 over two years to California YIMBY (short for “yes-in-my-back-yard”) for general support. California YIMBY is a statewide organization that advocates for more housing across California. We continue to see advocacy aimed at changing California state policies to allow more housing as a promising philanthropic opportunity. As part of our focus on land use reform to promote housing affordability, we’ve supported a number of advocacy organizations in high-wage, high-cost regions (e.g. Seattle and Washington, D.C.) to push for more housing. See our previous grant for more context.
