Amount of Brazil Aid in 2023
President-elect Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT), who will take office in January, is trying to approve the transitional PEC to guarantee an increase in the base value of the Auxílio Brasil from R$400 to R$600, transforming the provisional value , which would end in December, in fixed. The change would cost around BRL 52 billion to the public coffers, exceeding the amount allocated to the program in the 2023 budget proposal, of BRL 105 billion.
The PEC proposes removing spending on the Auxílio Brasil from the budget, allowing for greater investment in the program, including the extra expense of R$18 billion to fund an additional benefit of R$150, which must be paid per child up to six years old. for beneficiary families. The withdrawal from the budget allows, in addition to changes in the program, the amount allocated to the benefit to be reallocated to other measures, such as raising the minimum wage above inflation, which has not happened since 2019.
