“This program is not in the scheme of cash, but activities that were agreed by the neighborhood forum. If the proposal does not come from a mutual agreement in the neighborhood unit, the activity cannot be carried out,” said Yuriansyah.

Further, each neighborhood unit must have a work program aligned with the allocated budget. This fund program is a form of government support to embody development at the neighborhood level.

The DPMPDes will coordinate the funds’ disbursement directly to village accounts to be given to each neighborhood unit. Neighborhood units can carry out activities on their own or in collaboration with other units.

Yuriansyah said, “The activities implementation has to be communicated between village officials and the neighborhood units. Proposed activities are the decision of the neighborhood residents, as the East Kutai Government cannot intervene.”

As part of the smallest administrative area, neighborhood units have their own priority needs. Yuriansyah believed that if this program is implemented properly according to the Regent’s Regulations, development in East Kutai can be carried out optimally from the smallest administrative area. Indirectly, economic growth can also be boosted in aggregate.
