Beyonce’s charity foundation has announced plans to provide $5,000 grants to 100 homeowners and renters facing foreclosure or eviction amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The superstar singer’s BeyGOOD foundation made the announcement ahead of the Christmas holiday and before Congress agreed to extend a national eviction moratorium through January.
“When we were faced with the pandemic caused by COVID-19, BeyGOOD created a plan to make a difference, a BeyGOOD press release stated. “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. This holiday season, while many are stressed with what they will do next regarding their housing, we are proud to share some GOOD news.”
The grants are part of the foundation’s BeyGOOD Impact Fund.
Applicants must submit all necessary documentation to the NAACP for the online process that begins on Jan. 7.
A second round of grants will begin in February, the foundation said.
