(Brazilia).- The Commission for the Defense of the Rights of Elderly Persons of the Chamber of Deputies approved Bill 4340/23, by deputy Miguel Lombardi (PL-SP), which allocates 1% of the revenue to Long-Term Institutions for the Elderly (Ilpis) with three special Caixa lottery draws, including Mega da Virada.

Commission approves project that allocates part of lottery revenue to institutions that care for the elderly

According to the approved text, lottery resources must be fully invested in actions involving:

-prevention and control of infections within ILPIs;
-purchase of basic supplies and equipment for the safety and hygiene of residents and employees;
-purchase of medicines; 
-adequacy of spaces for isolation of suspected and mild cases of serious illnesses.
-in 2023, Mega da Virada raised more than R$2.4 billion and paid a record prize of R$589 million.

The rapporteur, deputy Geraldo Resende (PSDB-MS), recommended approval of the proposal. “The creation of a permanent and reliable source of resources could represent a true and very welcome revolution in ILPIs”, he commented.

ILPIs are institutions, governmental or not, designed to offer housing and conditions of freedom, dignity and citizenship for the elderly. The proposal creates the National Support Program for institutions of this nature.

The approved text also provides that lottery resources must be transferred even to institutions with tax debts to the Union and regardless of the Certification of Social Assistance Benevolent Entities (Cebas).

Next steps
The project is being processed conclusively and will still be analyzed by the Finance and Taxation committees; and Constitution and Justice and Citizenship.
