Beyonce Joins NAACP to Help Black Businesses Affected by Coronavirus

For those good deeds she will always be the queen.

Beyoncé’s BeyGood organization has partnered with NAACP to help small black-owned businesses in select cities across the country. In an announcement made Monday (July 13), the NAACP revealed that they would partner with the BeyGood Small Business Impact Fund to expand their efforts to help companies affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The five cities eligible for the $ 10,000 grant are Bey’s hometown, Houston, Atlanta, her husband JAY-Z’s home in New York, Los Angeles, and George Floyd’s Minneapolis city.

“In recent months, the pandemic and efforts for justice across the black community and across the country have been felt in every conceivable area of our lives, including how our local businesses continue to operate,” the NAACP wrote in a press release.

“The challenges of black business owners navigating the climate cannot be underestimated, as the effects of the uprisings across the country have left many companies in dire straits due to damage and other small business needs.”

Applicants will be accepted through July 18 through the NAACP website, and will be notified by July 31 through the Beyonce website.
