The Kecamatan Development project will become a model for local, decentralized funding that will serve as a centerpiece of community-driven support for years to come.
The initial Kecamatan Development project provides block grants available to villages based on proposals selected through the subdistrict council -- or kecamatan -- of village leaders. In addition to building and improving public infrastructure, the project aims to strengthen kecamatan and village government and community institutions while raising rural incomes. The original Kecamatan Development project is piloted in 25 villages. The project will be replicated numerous times as part of the Kecamatan Development Program (KDP). By 2007, the KDP will be scaled-up even further and renamed the National Program for Community Empowerment. By 2015 it will have reached more than 70,000 villages and urban wards.
