The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $400,000 over two years to the Niskanen Center to support its work on immigration policy.

This funding represents a renewal of our 2015 grant recommendation to the Niskanen Center. Since that time, Niskanen has grown its immigration program to approximately $1M/year. Because we do not expect significant positive movement on immigration at the federal level over the next few years, we view 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 our focus area of immigration policy.
