Sightline Institute — Housing and Urban Development

Sightline Institute
Award Date:
To support Sightline Institute's work on housing and urban development.

The Open Philanthropy Project granted $400,000 over two years to support the Sightline Institute’s work to promote a package of land use reforms in Seattle that combines increases in market rate and below market rate housing. The Sightline Institute is a think tank based in Seattle, WA, focused on sustainability issues in the Pacific Northwest (Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia).

This grant was made as part of our exploration of land use reform (one of our focus areas). If successful, we believe this set of reforms could serve as a rubric for similar land use reform efforts in other key regions.
