Community Motivation and Enthusiasm for the Development of Muncan Village in the Housing Stimulant Grants Program Amid the Covid-19 Pandemic
The research was conducted in Muncan Village, Karangasem, Bali. The implementation of the new normal order amid the Covid-19 pandemic has changed people’s life structure. The purpose of this study is three folds: first, to find out what kind of motivation the people of Muncan Village have in coping with the pandemic; second, to figure out situation and the reasons for receiving the aid from the Indonesian government for Muncan Village; and third, to find out the strategies for field officers in performing their duties during the pandemic. More specifically, this study focuses on studying how 100 uninhabitable housing units that received home rehabilitation assistance amid the Covid-19 utilized the assistance. We expect that the results of this research could provide lessons on how to distribute the assistance such that it goes to the right target and thus could yield maximum benefits to the community. Primary data was taken from the level of community self-sufficiency in the Housing Stimulant Grants Program (BSPS) by the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing of Indonesia during the pandemic for Muncan Village.
