Emergency Aid is extended for cultural workers

A presidential decree published in the Diário Oficial da União, on Tuesday (20), brought relief to workers in the culture sector affected by the covid-19 pandemic. The legal instrument added more time to request the benefit of the so-called Aldir Blanc Law (Law 14,017, of June 29, 2020).

The new decree, nº 10.683, issued by President Jair Bolsonaro, extends the terms of Decree 10,464, which had regulated the Aldir Blanc Law, in August of last year. The deadlines for carrying out activities and rendering accounts, expired in March, were extended, respectively, to December 31, 2021 and March 31, 2022.

According to the decree, only amounts entered in balances to be paid will be paid, from resources already authorized in 2020 for execution in 2021, continuing the emergency actions related to the pandemic, without any increase in public spending.

The Aldir Blanc Law

The Aldir Blanc Law aims to minimize the impact of the pandemic on the cultural sector in Brazil. For this, it earmarked R$ 3 billion in benefits for artists, producers and technicians, as well as funds for the maintenance of artistic and cultural spaces, as well as micro and small companies linked to the sector.

The values ​​are R$600 for cultural workers, limited to two members of the same family, and between R$3,000 and R$10,000 monthly for the maintenance of spaces, small businesses and community organizations. According to the decree, managers will have to disclose all information about amounts and beneficiaries of resources on public websites.

The rendering of accounts, with a report on the final management of the activities, may now be presented until March 31, 2022 by the states, municipalities and the Federal District, with an extension allowed for another 90 days, “upon justification of the federative entities and authorization of the Special Secretariat of Culture of the Ministry of Tourism”.
