Beyoncé is doing her part to help people struggling to survive during the pandemic. The Houston native’s BeyGood Foundation has announced the 2nd phase of its impact fund, which will provide 100 families with $5,000 grants.
The money is meant to help individuals and families facing foreclosures or evictions.
“Beyoncé is continuing her heart of support and helping where needed most. Phase Two of the BeyGOOD Impact Fund will now help those impacted by the housing crisis,” a news release stated. “The housing moratorium is set to end on Dec. 26, resulting in mortgage foreclosures and rental evictions. Many families are impacted, due to the pandemic that resulted in job loss, sickness and overall economy downturn.”
Those who wish to apply for the grants must submit the necessary documentation to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) by the deadline. The online application process will open on Jan. 7, 2021, and the grants will be disbursed later that month.
This is not the actress, singer and global superstar’s first time helping communities affected by the pandemic.
BeyGOOD teamed up with the NAACP to support Black-owned small businesses impacted by the pandemic, so far providing 250 businesses with $10,000 grants.
In May, she set up mobile Covid-19 testing sites with her mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, in Houston. She also donated, in partnership with Jack Dorsey’s Start Small fund, $6 million to coronavirus relief in April.
Thanks for always supporting H-Town Queen!
