The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $150,000 to the Sightline Institute to support work on housing and land use. Sightline Institute, a think tank based in Seattle focused on sustainability issues in the Pacific Northwest, plans to use these funds to support priority housing legislation in Washington and Oregon.

This grant was made by a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, to which we occasionally make funding recommendations.

This discretionary support follows our October 2017 grant and falls within our focus area of land use reform.
