EMBRATUR, Brazil's national tourism organization, doesn't have offices overseas, though its website is helpful. For information in your home country, contact the Brazilian embassy or the closest consulate, some of which have websites and staff dedicated to promoting tourism. The official consular website in New York, novayork.itamaraty.gov.br/en-us, has details about other consulates and the embassy as well as travel information and links to other sites. Cities and towns throughout Brazil have local tourist boards, and some state capitals also have state tourism offices.
