Delivery is part of the Technical and Financial Cooperation Agreement signed with the municipality (ES)
This May, the municipality of Linhares, in Espirito Santo, received three vehicles to support social assistance services. The delivery is part of the Technical and Financial Cooperation Agreement signed by the Renova Foundation with municipalities impacted by the Fundao dam collapse to strengthen public protection and social assistance services in these locations. Three fuel cards will also be included.
Linhares will receive around R$ 2.6 million to be invested in social assistance. The Renova Foundation has begun transferring the funds, which will be deposited in four installments. So far, over R$ 624,000 have been made available. The actions follow the Social Protection Reparation Plan created with teams from the municipal government of Linhares.
Through the agreement, 24 municipalities in Minas Gerais and Espirito Santo will receive a total of R$ 27 million and 35 vehicles from the Renova Foundation. The funds are intended to expand the service to more than 14 thousand vulnerable families residing in the locations affected by the Fundao dam collapse.
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 for impacted vulnerable families and individuals.
“The vehicles will contribute to a better service to families in impacted communities. The signed agreement will also enable Linhares to offer training to the teams, transfer funds to hire 17 professionals, purchase supplies and equipment,” says the coordinator of the Social Protection Program at the Renova Foundation, Priscila Ohira.
The population will directly benefit from the allocated funds, as the municipality will provide social workers, psychologists, and workshops to expand the service and supplies for activities in the Social Assistance Reference Center (Cras) and the Specialized Social Assistance Reference Center (Creas).
