The National Institute of Colonization and Agrarian Reform (Incra) created a standard that defines the procedures so that families living in settlement projects created by other government agencies and in sustainable use conservation units can be included in the National Agrarian Reform Program ( PNRA). The rules, which can also be applied to quilombola communities, are published in the Official Diary of the Union this Thursday (9).
According to the instructions, bodies and entities must request the inclusion of families in the PNRA through a letter presented to the Incra presidency or regional superintendency with documents from the area and the list of families to be benefited, with the general number of people, in addition to the Register of Individuals – CPF – of each head of the family unit.
The process will be inserted into the Electronic Information System (SEI), where it will be processed administratively until the publication of an ordinance recognizing the settlement or conservation unit in the Official Gazette of the Union.
After recognition, a new process will begin through a form that must be presented to the Incra Regional Superintendence or to the Directorate of Development and Consolidation of Settlement Projects, so that an analysis can be made of the families’ profiles in relation to what is provided for in the Agrarian Reform Law.
In general, family income limits for non-agrarian activities are observed, as amounts above three minimum wages per month or one minimum wage per member are an impediment to being a beneficiary, as are other sources of income, such as public service, participation in company or on other rural properties, for example.
After approval published on the Incra website, families will have access to PNRA public policies. Along with the rules, Incra also made available models of letters and requests to be presented in the processes.
