Bolsa Família is aimed at families in situations of poverty or extreme poverty, with priority for those with children, teenagers, pregnant or breastfeeding women.

With specific eligibility criteria, it seeks to reach those who need it most. The program’s commitment is to be inclusive and respond to varied social dynamics.

Bolsa Família is, therefore, a vital tool for the country’s social and economic development, promoting equal opportunities.

In a move to expand the reach of its social policies, Bolsa Família introduced new guidelines to benefit individuals who live alone, adapting to the diverse realities of Brazilian families.

With the aim of offering financial support to those facing socioeconomic vulnerability, the program also includes single-person families, ensuring that assistance reaches everyone in need.

Eligibility and registration

To be eligible for Bolsa Família, it is essential to be registered in the Single Registry for Social Programs of the Federal Government (CadÚnico) and keep this information always up to date.

The income criterion is decisive: the family’s monthly per capita income must not exceed R$218. CadÚnico serves as a gateway to various social programs, being essential for allocating resources to those who really need it.
