Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $2,600,000 over two years to California YIMBY (short for “yes-in-my-back-yard”) for general support. California YIMBY is a statewide organization that advocates for more housing across California. We continue to see advocacy aimed at changing California state policies to allow more housing as a promising philanthropic opportunity. As part of our focus on land use reform to promote housing affordability, we’ve supported a number of advocacy organizations in high-wage, high-cost regions (e.g. Seattle and Washington, D.C.) to push for more housing. See our previous grant for more context.

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