Worldwide philanthropist and recording artist Beyonce’ just recently announced that her charity organization, BeyGOOD, will be giving out $500,000 to families and individuals who are subject to foreclosure or eviction as the eviction moratorium is set to expire December 26.
The Houston native launched the BeyGOOD foundation as her direct solution to help those who were affected by Hurricane Harvey in 2017. According to BillBoard, since the launch of Beyonce’s Small Business Impact foundation, over 250 businesses have received $10,000 in grants.
A statement released by the charity read, “When we were faced with the pandemic caused by COVID-19, BeyGOOD created a plan to make a difference. We assisted organizations across the country that were providing people with basic needs like food, water, household supplies and COVID testing. We also provided mental health support,”
To those in need this holiday season, to apply, necessary paperwork must be submitted to the NAACP. The online application process will open on Jan. 7, 2021, in which 100 eligible participants will be selected for grants that will be received later in that month. The second round is set to open in February. To those who may have already signed up in time for the month of December, there will be an announcement made next week for those recipients, says BillBoard.
“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,”
