The creation of Auxílio Brasil overturns Bolsa Família, which turned 18 on October 20th. The proposal to change the income transfer program was sent by President Jair Bolsonaro to the National Congress, in August this year, through the Provisional Measure (MP) 1061/2021.
Bolsa Família is a popular program, cited in articles and manifestos, not only for its impact on different spheres of Brazilian society over the years, but also for the fact that it is being annihilated by the Bolsonaro government. The change, however, can reduce the number of beneficiaries. An report from Estadão, with data obtained through the Law on Access to Information (LAI), showed that around 5.4 million beneficiaries may have a reduction in the benefit amount.
