Credit: Gustavo Louzada / MTur Just one day before the deadline for the registration of action plans at Plataforma + Brasil, which ends this Saturday (17.10), 17.72% (14) of the cities of Espírito Santo have not yet requested the resources provided by the Aldir Blanc Law to support Brazilian culture. In all, the Ministry of Tourism has allocated more than R $ 21.6 million to the municipalities of Espírito Santo and R $ 30.2 million to the state, totaling more than R $ 51.8 million. In all of Brazil, 4,160 municipalities have already registered their action plans with the Ministry of Tourism and 2,584 already have the resource in hand for application in the sector. In addition, all the states of the country and the Federal District have already received the amount, totaling more than R $ 2.6 billion paid by the federal government. The Minister of Tourism, Marcelo Álvaro Antônio, asked the Espírito Santo municipalities to be involved so that the entire sector cultural can be served. “Aldir Blanc was an important action by the federal government to serve the cultural sector, which was strongly affected by the pandemic. But we need 100% of adhesions to ensure that a greater number of municipalities receive the resource. We need to ensure that it reaches all cities and that we can serve all Brazilian artists and cultural spaces ”, he highlighted. Among the states with the lowest membership rates are: Roraima, where of the 15 municipalities, more than half have not yet joined the income emergency; Rondônia, with only 45.28% of the total cities covered; in addition to Amazonas and Goiás, where about 55% of the locations have not started their process so far. At the other end, almost 90% of the cities of Rio de Janeiro, Ceará and Amapá have already inserted their action plans to receive the amount. For the Special Secretary for Culture, Mário Frias, the resource directed to the municipality is essential to give continuity of the work that had been carried out in these areas before the pandemic. “We need the support of municipal managers so that this resource reaches these places that had to be closed due to the pandemic. They are the ones that generate jobs and income for thousands of Brazilian families ”, he pointed out. According to decree nº 10.464 / 2020, states, municipalities and the Federal District are responsible for the monthly distribution of the resource for the maintenance of artistic and cultural spaces, micro and small companies in the sector, cooperatives and community institutions / organizations that were affected by the pandemic. The resource can be distributed through public notices, public calls or other instruments applicable to prizes, acquisition of goods and services linked to the cultural sector. Currently, Pasta makes the payment provided for in the 4th batch, which will be finalized on October 26 . The amounts are transferred from the National Culture Fund, administered by MTur, preferably to the state, municipal and district culture funds. In case there is no cultural fund, the money may be passed on to other agencies responsible for the management of these resources. Edition: Lívia Nascimento
