The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $50,000 to the Sightline Institute to support a national “Yes In My Back Yard” conference, which will take place in Portland, Oregon. We previously supported the first three national YIMBY conferences to bring those housing advocates together in 2016 in Boulder, Colorado, in 2017 in Oakland, California, and in 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts.

This discretionary grant falls within our focus area of land use reform.
