R$320 school material card: valuable help

With the start of the school year, many families face the challenge of purchasing school supplies, a significant expense that can weigh heavily on the budget.

Thinking about alleviating this financial impact, the Federal District government launched a commendable initiative: the School Material Card, which offers up to R$320 to help low-income families purchase school materials.

The School Material Card is aimed at children and adolescents between 4 and 17 years old, enrolled in the public education network, from families registered in the Single Registry.

With this card, it is possible to purchase essential items such as notebooks, pencils, pens and backpacks from accredited stationery stores, ensuring that students are well prepared for the academic year.

How it works?

Enrollment in the program is automatic for those with updated data in the Single Registry, emphasizing the importance of keeping information up to date.

After registration, the card will be collected at the Social Assistance Reference Center (CRAS) unit, upon presentation of an identification document with a photo.

This process ensures that the benefit reaches those who really need it.


In addition to assistance with the purchase of school supplies, families enrolled in the Bolsa Família program can access other benefits, reinforcing the government’s support for the basic needs of school-age children and adolescents.

These additional benefits include citizenship income and early childhood assistance, among others. Tips for Making the Most of Your Card

To maximize the value of the card, it is recommended to plan your school supplies needs in advance, compare prices and prioritize durable items.

Furthermore, it is crucial to pay attention to the deadlines so as not to lose the benefit and share information about the existence of the card with other families that may benefit.

Tips for saving money when purchasing school items

Buying school supplies can be a challenge for the family budget. With a little planning and organization, it is possible to find alternatives to reduce expenses without compromising the quality of the materials.


The first step is to review the list of materials carefully, checking which items are already at home and can be reused. Talk to the school to understand if there are materials that can be shared between students.


Search for prices in different stores, both physical and online. Compare prices of different brands and evaluate the quality of the products before buying. Opt for generic brands, which tend to be cheaper.


Reuse materials from the previous year that are in good condition, such as notebooks, colored pencils, pens and backpacks. Encourage children to customize the materials they use, giving them a personal and creative touch.

Group Buy

Get together with other parents and shop as a group to negotiate discounts with stores. This is a great way to save on higher-value items like books and uniforms.
