The money distributed comes from the budget, but is not directly part of the most emblematic programs of the Ministry of Social Development, which are the Stability of Work and the Fuel Policy, which among them will represent more than the expenditure of the Government in 2023. $1 trillion.
Thus, the transfers that come from different parts of the state must be explained, such as social development (Socio-Urban Integration, Social Economy and Territorial Action), but also from the programs of the Ministry of Labor (Employment Act, Training Actions) and the Ministry of Proficiency (Assistance to Cooperation and Mutual Activity).
The sums distributed in a discretionary manner in public social and cooperative associations are not open, as is the case in other state expenditures.
This led to the fact that in 2021 the radical delegates Facundo Suárez Lastra and Fabio Quetglas demanded in Congress that the indices and funds received by public and private institutions, which were prostitutes, be referred to allocations related to social society.
