The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $400,000 over two years to the Niskanen Center to support its work on immigration policy.
The Niskanen Center is a new libertarian think tank that has made reducing barriers to immigration one of its focus areas. This funding represents a renewal of Open Philanthropy's 2015 grant recommendation to the Niskanen Center. Since that time, Niskanen has grown its immigration program to approximately $1M/year. Because Open Philanthropy does not expect significant positive movement on immigration at the federal level over the next few years, it views this support primarily as a way to ensure the Niskanen Center is able to continue developing relationships and policy ideas in advance of any future opportunities for progress.
This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on immigration policy.
