The Federal Government, through the Ministry of Regional Development (MDR), authorized, this Tuesday (31/05), the transfer of more than R$ 1.9 million to eight Brazilian cities affected by natural disasters. The ordinances authorizing the release of funds were published in the Official Gazette (DOU).
Minas Gerais was the state that received the most transfers, totaling R$ 1.3 million to six municipalities affected by heavy rains. For the city of Ataléia, R$ 243.7 thousand will be transferred for the reconstruction of the bridge.
For Amparo da Serra, R$ 493,300 will be allocated to reestablish access to the community, with the reconstruction of the culvert, head and bridge. Alvinópolis, on the other hand, will have R$ 135,600 for the restoration of wings and culverts.
In Santa Cruz do Escalvado, R$ 186,100 will be allocated to the construction of a gabion wall. For Caratinga, R$ 24,800 will be transferred to restore the side road. Finally, São José do Mantimento will have BRL 237,700 for the restoration of the bridge and retaining wall.
In addition to Minas Gerais, two other states also had cities benefited from resources from the Federal Government. The city of Vitória da Conquista, in Bahia, which was hit by heavy rains, will receive R$ 81.6 thousand for the restoration of public roads.
The municipality of Assis Chateaubriand, in Paraná, which registered hail, will allocate R$ 539,700 for the reconstruction of roofs.
How to apply for federal funds
After granting emergency status by the National Civil Defense, municipalities affected by disasters are able to request resources from the MDR to assist the affected population. Actions involve restoring essential services and rebuilding damaged infrastructure equipment.
The request must be made through the Integrated Disaster Information System (S2iD). Based on the information sent, the National Civil Defense technical team evaluates the goals and requested values. Upon approval, an ordinance is published in the DOU specifying the amount to be released.
National Civil Defense Qualifications
The National Civil Defense offers a series of distance courses to enable and qualify municipal and state agents for the use of S2iD, based on the Continued Training Plan in Civil Defense and Protection. The trainings focus on civil defense and protection agents in the three spheres of government.
