Beyoncé and The NAACP Are Teaming Up To Assist Those Impacted By The Housing Crisis


Beyoncé is teaming up with the NAACP, and offering support to those who might be losing their homes.


Last month, the pop icon announced that she would be offering grants of $5,000 to individuals and families facing foreclosure and evictions.


Through her BeyGOOD charity, Beyoncé has been coming to the aid of those who have suffered the most during the pandemic. Early on, the charity launched the “Black-Owned Small Business Impact Fund”, administered by the National Urban League, to support Black-owned small businesses in need. The initiative offered $10,000 grants to more than 250 small businesses.


According to the release on Beyoncé’s website, this is being called “phase two” of the BeyGOOD Impact Fund.


The NAACP provided the following statement regarding their partnership with Beyoncé: "The NAACP is committed to helping ensure African Americans maintain their wealth and financial security during this unprecedented time of COVID-19. We are partnering with BeyGOOD to provide one hundred grants up to $5,000 each to families who are delinquent in their home mortgage or rental payments.”


Applications opened earlier this week, the organization will eventually select 100 applicants to receive the grants. Applicants are required to submit the necessary documentation including their most recent mortgage statement or rental delinquency notice to the NAACP.


Beyoncé has also been using her gift of music to do her part in raising funds for COVID-19. She released two songs where all proceeds went to COVID-19 related causes. Savage Remix with Megan Thee Stallion benefited Bread of Life's Houston COVID-19 relief efforts. Another song, “Black Parade” was released on Juneteenth as an empowering anthem - it also benefited BeyGOOD's Black Business Impact Fund. Both songs scored nominations for the 2020 Grammy awards which will be held in March.
