Singer, record producer, and actress Beyoncé, announced last Wednesday that she will be donating $500,000 to be distributed to families facing housing crises. Through her BeyGOOD Foundation, this American artist has been providing lots of big help during the pandemic, in partnership with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
Previously, Beyonce’s help also came in the form of grants given to small black-owned businesses and in supplying people with necessities such as food, water, COVID testing, and mental health support throughout the country,
As it is, millions of families are still affected by the pandemic, encountering different problems aside from getting sick. Millions have lost their jobs as the country’s overall economic condition has been going downhill. Families do not have the means to solve rental evictions and mortgage foreclosure problems, as the $300 unemployment insurance check ended last December 26. The BeyGOOD Foundation will be giving $5,000 grants to 100 individuals experiencing evictions and foreclosures during the holidays.
About the Application Process
Individuals who are interested in applying for the grant are required to submit the needed documents to the NAACP, a civil rights organization in the country that ensures the rights of African Americans. The organization has been around since 1909 in response to the injustices and violence encountered by many Black people, and has over 2,200 branches and units in the country.
The online application for the grant will be available on January 27 next year and the financial help will be given later subsequently that month. Additionally, there will also be a second round in February, which Beyoncé and her foundation will fund for qualified families who didn’t get the grant this coming January.
