Beyoncé is certainly no stranger to giving back, and while we aren’t out of the woods yet in the global pandemic, it looks like the superstar is continuing to use her platform for good.

Beyoncé’s Beygood Foundation announced on Instagram that applications are open for housing relief. The post states, “BEYGOOD IMPACT FUND HOUSING SUPPORT ONLINE APPLICATIONS OPENS TODAY, JANUARY 7TH.”

The application is currently live on the official NAACP website. A statement on the site reads, “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.”

An official statement from the BeyGOOD Foundation reads, “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.” 

This is not the first time Beyoncé has partnered with the NAACP during the COVID-19 pandemic. We reported that the foundation announced its Black-owned Small Business Impact Fund in July of 2020.
