Singer Beyonce will be offering $5,000 grants to help people, who are facing foreclosures or evictions due to the housing crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, reported CNN.
In an announcement on her website, Beyonce said that people can apply for the grants from January 7, 2021. The grants will be sent to 100 people selected in late January.
A news release said, "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."
It added, "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."
An analysis of Census data by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities said that 9.2 million renters, who have lost income during the pandemic, are behind on rent.
They could face losing their homes, once the moratoriums are lifted and the landlords ask for the rents.
People applying for the grants submit the necessary documentation to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) within the deadline.
The singer has been making several efforts for people affected by the pandemic. She has partnered with the NAACP to support Black-owned small businesses that have been impacted by the pandemic and have so far provided 250 businesses with $10,000 grants.
