“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,” read a statement from the Grammy winner’s charitable organization.
Since launching the BeyGOOD Small Business Impact fund, more than 250 small businesses have received $10,000 grants to date. “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,” the statement continued. “The housing moratorium is set to end on December 26th, 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.”
To qualify for the BeyGood Foundation grant, the necessary paperwork must be submitted to the NAACP, with the online application process opening on January 7th, 2021, subsequent to which 100 recipients will be selected. The second round is slated to open in February.
