Among the municipalities are Luís Gomes (drought), São Tomé (drought) and Almino Afonso (drought). The information was published this Wednesday (3), through a decree from the Ministry of Integration and Regional Development (MIDR), in the Official Gazette of the Union (DOU).

In addition to Rio Grande do Norte, two other states in the Northeast appear with cities covered by recognition: Pernambuco, due to the drought faced in Poção, and Paraíba. In the case of the latter, the cities affected are Fagundes (drought) and Boqueirão (drought).

According to the Federal Government, once they have federal recognition, municipalities are able to request MIDR resources for humanitarian assistance actions, such as purchasing food, drinking water and fuel for vehicles that transport supplies. The transfers will be released as soon as the work plans are presented by the city hall and evaluated by the National Civil Defense technical team.

How to request resources

Requests for resources by municipalities in emergency situations must be made through the Integrated Disaster Information System (S2iD). In addition to aid and assistance to victims, it also transfers resources to restore essential services and rebuild infrastructure or homes destroyed or damaged by disasters.

Based on the information sent in the work plans, the National Civil Defense technical team evaluates the goals and values ​​requested. With approval, an ordinance is published in the DOU with the amount to be released.
