The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $300,000 over 2.5 years to Greater Greater Washington to support its work on housing affordability and land use reform. Greater Greater Washington is a news and advocacy organization that focuses on housing, transportation, and other local policy issues in the greater Washington, D.C. metro area.

This follows our June 2017 grant and falls within our focus area of land use reform.

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $250,000 over two years to Greater Greater Washington to continue our support for its work on housing affordability and land use reform. We think it is mostly too early to tell whether its work has had any impact on housing construction or affordability, though we see the coalition it has helped coordinate in support of including more housing in D.C.’s revised Comprehensive Plan as a promising initial step.1
