Abstract

This paper aims to analyze poverty concerning the special autonomy program of Yogyakarta toward the utilization of special autonomy funds to reduce its rate. This type of research is a qualitative study with a descriptive approach. The data source is compiled from the literature derived from the journal, scientific report and various other documents produced by different agencies related to poverty policy and special autonomy in Yogyakarta. The data collection techniques used in this study are documentation. At the same time, the analysis was done by the coding method and content analysis. The results showed that the regional government of Yogyakarta allocated autonomy funds in the activities designed and approved by the Ministry of Finance, considering the privileges received is a specific allocation fund of the central government. Related to poverty rate that is still high in Yogyakarta, programs funded with special autonomy funds are expected to provide a leverage effect to poverty alleviation. However, this leverage effect has not successfully appeared in the implementation of the autonomy program in Yogyakarta.
