Beyoncé will offer 5,000-dollar grants to help people facing foreclosures or evictions in the U.S. due to the housing crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
People can apply for the grants beginning January 7, the singer announced on her website. Grants will be sent out to the 100 people selected in late January.
According to a news release, “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.”
This is not Beyoncé’s first effort to help communities hurt by the pandemic. BeyGOOD supported Black-owned small businesses impacted by the health crisis, so far providing 250 businesses with 10,000-dollar grants.
In May, she set up mobile Covid-19 testing sites with her mother in their hometown of Houston, Texas. She also donated, in partnership with Jack Dorsey’s Start Small fund, six million dollars to coronavirus relief in April.
