Date: 2003-
Web: Official website of the programme
Description: The largest conditional cash transfer programme in the region in terms of coverage. It was created in 2003 with the unification of the sectorial conditional cash transfer programmes (Bolsa Escola, Bolsa Alimentação, Cartão Alimentação, Auxilio-Gas). In 2005, it also unified the Child labour Eradication Program (PETI) including specific conditionalities to poor families that present child labour situations.Since 2012, it include a bonus to overcome extreme poverty, which covers the difference between the per capita family income and the value of the extreme poverty line.
   

Characteristics

Target population: Families in poverty and extreme poverty
Geographic scale: National
Targeting method: 1) Families with per capita income below the poverty line, according to household surveys.
2) Set quotas on the number of recepient families at the municipal level, as a result of the analysis of the number of families with per capita income below the poverty line according to household surveys
3) Municipalities register families that, according to the CadÚnico, have a per capita income lower than half the minimum wage or families whose total income is lower than three minimum wages.
4) Means test and comparative analysis with other databases and administrative datasets
Instrument of selection: Household surveys from the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) and information in the Unified Registry (Cadastro Único para Programas Sociais do Governo Federal or CadÚnico).
Registry of recipients: Unfied registry for social programmes (CadÚnico)
Exit strategies or criteria: When household loses eligibility. Recertification every two years. The program Bolsa Familia allows for a temporary stay in the program of two additional years if the household per capita monthly income exceeds the threshold stablished by the program but not the the average minimum monthly wage per capita.
Links with employment and training programmes
Comments: Beneficiaries have access to "complementary programmes" administered by each municipality in matters of vocational training, education, microcredit, among others. Households that voluntarily inform a level of income higher than the threshold of eligibility can enter the program in the future if their socioeconomic level worsens in the following 36 months (retorno garantido)
