Love in Motion Grant Application

 

Who is Love in Motion?

Love In Motion is a Puerto Rican non-profit organization under Section 501 (c) (3) whose mission is to provide the necessary tools and empowerment through hope and education for the development of community-based tourism in the Caribbean. It was founded in 2017 by the Local Guest Team and born in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.

What is the Love in Motion Grant?

In recent times, Puerto Rico has been hit by a series of life changing climate and health catastrophes that has created a hard economic impact to our friends in community projects dedicated to receiving travelers as a means of living. To help support our peers in the sustainable community industry we wanted to give support to local Puerto Rican projects and organizations in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, January 2020 Earthquakes and COVID 19.

Recognizing that vulnerable communities are hit the hardest by climate and health disasters and are far too often left underserved by relief agencies, the Love in Motion Grant was conceived to move resources to grassroots initiatives and community organizations that are part of an infrastructure that has the capacity to fulfill needs over short and long-term.

Who decides?

Our Staff and Governance Committee is made up of people who live in Puerto Rico.

Who can apply?

All community projects and organizations based in Puerto Rico dedicated or have initiatives regarding sustainable tourism or sustainable tourism development practices.
