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

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $350,000 over two years to the Sightline Institute to support work on housing and urban development. Sightline Institute is a think tank based in Seattle, WA, focused on sustainability issues in the Pacific Northwest.

This grant represents a renewal of our October 2015 support to the Sightline Institute, which we wrote about in more detail on this page. The Sightline Institute intends to use this funding to continue promoting the Housing Affordability and Livability Advisory Committee’s (HALA) land use reform agenda in Seattle, and to promote similar reforms nationally by disseminating lessons learned from the Seattle initiative.

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