Of this amount, R$899,000 will be used in Incra to fulfill the commitment made before the Inter-American Court of Human Rights to provide redress to the quilombola communities in Alcântara (MA).

The program aims to shorten the process analysis time; comply with expired court decisions; conducting specialized medical examinations and analyzing documents; and conduct a specialized medical examination specifically for a federal official. The loan will also increase the overall cost of the program to reduce queues for expert opinions.
Loan opening of R$19.5 million PLN 20/2023 to the port of Santos and to the Brazilian Agency of Guarantee Funds and Guarantees (ABGF). The value comes from both companies' own resources. ABGF helps implement public policies using funds and guarantees from EU funds. It will allocate R$ 442,700 for the modernization of equipment and technological systems.
For Santos Port, R$19 million will be allocated to complete the paving and drainage of Avenida Perimetral Portuária, which provides access to the port.
