In January, the death was registered of three people who were receiving Emergency Financial Aid. One of these has an eligible dependent in the town of Resplendor (MG), and therefore the primary card holder was modified. The others do not have any eligible dependents to proceed with a primary card holder modification.

Adjustments were made to the number of dependents of 14 active primary card holders and to the classification of eight persons eligible to Emergency Financial Aid, who were included in the Traditional Peoples Program because they fall within the placer miner category.

A total of 461 new primary card holders were included in the Emergency Financial Aid Program, of whom 284 are riparian people, 160 are from the new areas, seven are fishermen who were granted a General Fishing Activity Record, four resulting from judicial measures, five through re-examination of eligibility and one rural producer.

The program also operationalized the payment of financial aid for 211 placer miners and 129 residents of Quilombos, defined as Traditional Peoples, and met the legal demands and requests carried out by the Renova Foundation customer service channels.

The primary card holder of three families with dependents were changed due to death, in the localities of Baixo Guandu, Colatina and Aimores, in Espirito Santo. In Mariana (MG), four families were detached in the database, as they were receiving the payment of accumulated emergency financial aid for all family members assessed as affected. Also identified were four deaths and exit of seven people from the program, resulting from the continuous monitoring of the program's eligible registrations.

The program also conducted 905 interviews for re-examination of eligibility and two changes of the main recipient, due to death, in the month of November. In addition, it met the legal demands and requests received through its customer service channels.

A preliminary version of the program definition has been developed and its processes have been redesigned. Furthermore, there were 12 cards that changed the name of the holder and 2 people entered the program. Payments were made to those impacted defined as traditional peoples and 128 Quilombola families.

The interview process with affected individuals who presented inconsistencies in the registration data is ongoing. Operationalization of the payment of Traditional Peoples that were affected and of 128 Quilombola families.

Members of the program participated in the 15th meeting of the Technical Board of Social Organization (CTOS) in Brasilia.

The interview process has started with some affected parties whose integrated registration presented inconsistency with the emergency registration. Due to death of the main beneficiary, three beneficiaries were changed. In Mariana (MG), a Financial Aid card was granted and the number of dependents of two beneficiaries was adjusted.

With regard to new benefits, 21 cards were provided to fishermen with deferred professional RGP, with credit for the month of August, and 23 cards to fishermen from the colony Z19 of Governador Valadares (MG). These cards were a demand of the Prosecution Service.

In June 2017, deliveries of the new Alelo cards continued. We returned to the localities with new schedules for beneficiaries who previously were traveling or sick. Detainees and relatives of deceased holders were also contacted for regularization with the program. This way, with the support of other programs of the Foundation, such as Social Dialogue, Registration and Social Protection, 99% of deliveries were achieved.

In May 3,396 Alelo cards were distributed, totaling 7,684 distributions within the ideal timeframe for the action, which represents 93.8% of the goal of replacing the cards of more than 8 thousand impacted parties.

In April 2017, 2,775 Alelo debit cards were handed out. Alelo is the new operator responsible for the benefit payments. The replacement is due to the termination of the contract with the company Policard, which previously performed the service.

In March 2017, 2,394 Alelo debit cards were handed out. Alelo is the new operator responsible for the benefit payments. The expectation is that by May 30, the over 8000 beneficiaries will all have received the new cards.

The distribution of financial aid was carried out according profession category:

Fishermen - 67%
Rural farmers - 13.5%
Sand fishermen - 2%

So far, 8,059 main beneficiaries and 19,637 main + dependent beneficiaries have received emergency financial aid. After the reassessment of 2,981 cases of denied financial aid claims, 193 cards were granted, which have already been issued and delivered to beneficiaries, increasing the number of families assisted by the program. In addition, the families of miners in the region of Santa Cruz Escalvado (MG) were assisted and received basic food hampers.

So far, 7,939 beneficiaries have received emergency financial aid and 2,981 cases of financial aid cards were reviewed and sent to the Inter-federative Committee for analysis. Support took place via financial aid cards, after court ruling which ordered the payment of funds relating to the electricity bills of the residents of Mariana and Barra Longa, Minas Gerais, displaced from their homes in November 2015.

The eligibility of 2,800 cases, appointed for re-evaluation by the Inter-federative Committee, is under review. As a result, the Renova Foundation implemented a special team in order to ensure a speedy progress of the process. It conducted the service, via financial aid cards, after court ruling ordered the payment of funds relating to the electricity bills of the residents of Mariana and Barra Longa in Minas Gerais, displaced from their homes in November 2015. In addition, the purchase of basic food hampers took place for distribution to mineworkers of Santa Cruz do Escalvado (MG).

The maintenance of the emergency aid card delivery to the River People identified as eligible for the program is in progress, as well as the evaluation of non-defined cases of possible loss of income in Mariana. In October, a meeting was held with the community of Colatina (ES) for questions about the emergency financial aid program and the opening of requests for the distribution of food to miners of Santa Cruz do Escalvado (MG).
