23 December 2020, 14:17 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Beyoncé's BeyGOOD charity has extended its Impact Fund to provide support to those facing housing issues during the coronavirus pandemic.

Beyoncé's BeyGOOD foundation has helped provide people with basic necessities (food, water, COVID testing) and mental health support throughout the COVID-19 pandemic so far, as well as providing small businesses with grants to help them stay afloat during the pandemic.

Now the charity is extending its Impact Fund to help people with housing issues. The post on Beyoncé's site states, "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 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."

"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 post continues. "Beyoncé is giving $5k grants to individuals and families facing foreclosures or evictions."

Before the end of the post, the BeyGOOD team adds, "All necessary documentation must be provided to the NAACP. Online Application process opens January 7, 2021, where 100 recipients will be selected and grants disbursed in late January. Round 2 will open in February. And there’s more holiday GOOD NEWS. Stay tuned next week as we announce the December recipients of the Small Business Impact Fund."
