With the end of Emergency Aid, in October 2021, the number of families in extreme poverty skyrocketed in the federal government’s Cadastro Único (CadÚnico).
The system that gives access to Auxílio Brasil had 2.6 million registrations from families in this income bracket in five months, according to the Ministry of Citizenship.
Last year, in October, there were 15.1 million families in poverty registered in the register. In March, the number rose to 17.8 million. These are families that already lived in extreme poverty or reported having lost income and started living in poverty, with a monthly per capita income of up to R$ 105. The information is from Uol.

For this year, the government has set aside R$ 89.8 billion for the payment of the benefit. In April, Auxílio Brasil paid 18 million in benefits, with an average of R$409.82 per family. Even so, the program has a waiting list that reached one million families in February, according to the National Confederation of Municipalities (CNM).
The CNM calculates that annual spending would have to jump to 92 billion a year to meet pent-up demand, generating a deficit of R$ 2 billion.
