Of all the aid and income-sharing schemes that Brazil offers, the Filling Aid Voucher has been the most celebrated since its inception was announced. Faced with the excessive increase in fuel prices in the country, this type of initiative has never been more necessary.

The current government had been flirting with the idea for some time, so it seems that the election year gave the proposal the little boost it needed. The project comes from Senator Rogério Carvalho (PT-SE) and ended up being approved by the Federal Senate.
The idea had been circulating since March, but suffered from a certain reluctance on the part of the Chamber of Deputies. For many, the idea of creating a voucher between R$100 and R$300 for people who work with transport would generate very high expenses. Something around R$ 3 billion. In the end, it looks like things ended up happening.
The idea is that this project will help app, taxi and motorcycle taxi drivers. Priority will be given to people who are part of CadÚnico. For the moment, what we know is that everything will be organized as follows:
- Drivers who drive motorcycles up to 125 cc will receive R$ 100;
- Self-employed drivers or those who work with individual transport, including application and taxi drivers, will receive R$300.
In both cases, the driver must bear in mind that his family income cannot exceed three minimum wages. In any case, it should be borne in mind that the project has not yet been properly approved.
It still has to go through the House of Representatives. And even then, he will not have his definitive guarantee, since he would also have to be sanctioned by President Jair Bolsonaro. The project therefore still has a long way to go before seeing the light of day.
In an attempt to convince both parties, the proposal also brings an idea to justify the resources needed to finance this operation, as is the case to mitigate the impacts of fluctuations in domestic prices and oil derivatives, as well as LPG.
In short, the idea of being able to really release this aid this year is something completely plausible, however it is important that no one counts on this aid, because as we know, nothing is guaranteed when it comes to politicians and their politics.
In general, everyone agrees that in a year of crisis and such excessive prices, such aid to workers would be more than welcome.
