Amount:
$50,000
Purpose:
To support a national "Yes In My Backyard" conference

Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $50,000 to the Sightline Institute to support a national “Yes In My Backyard” conference, which took place in Portland, Oregon. This was added funding to cover additional costs due to COVID. We previously supported the first three national YIMBY conferences, which were held in 2016 in Boulder, Colorado; in 2017 in Oakland, California; and in 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts.

This grant follows our July 2019 support and falls within our focus area of land use reform.
