More than 400 vulnerable families will be covered by the agreement, which provides professional training and R$837,000 to the municipality.
The agreement signed between Renova Foundation and the City of Colatina will strengthen social assistance services in this city in Espirito Santo. More than 400 vulnerable families affected by the Fundão (MG) dam collapse will be covered by the Technical Cooperation Agreement, signed this year in May. More than R$837,000 will be allocated through the Social Protection RFP.
The document outlines the selection of a social assistance institution through the Social Protection RFP to supplement public social assistance policies in the municipality, supporting vulnerable families in seven impacted communities. In addition, it will provide for the qualification of around ten municipal social assistance agents.
According to Renova Foundation’s Social Protection Program specialist, Maria Albanita de Lima, this partnership is important for the reparation process of vulnerable groups. “Signing this agreement enables Renova Foundation to support actions already implemented by the City of Colatina Unified Social Assistance System (SUAS) and also the qualification of its professionals, optimizing the service to affected communities,” she says.
The municipality must monitor the work of the entity selected through the RFP, which is expected to be announced as of August 23 on the Renova Foundation website. The agreement is expected to last 24 months.
Social Protection RFP
Overall, around R$ 9.5 million will be transferred to projects that promote assistance and monitoring of vulnerable populations in 11 affected municipalities. These resources will be directed to social assistance, sociocultural and psychosocial initiatives, focusing on promoting and strengthening family bonds in seven cities and towns in Minas Gerais and four in Espirito Santo.
This initiative is part of the Renova Foundation’s Social Protection Program. It aims to promote social protection through social assistance actions, including sociocultural activities and psychosocial support, aiming to offer reparation to affected vulnerable families and individuals.
