The Regent of Temanggung M. Al Khadziq said that the Social Service was trying to provide assistance to the underprivileged, who so far have not received assistance from government programs.

According to him, this step is very helpful for the community, because so far the people who have received assistance from the JPS program have not received any assistance at all.

"This assistance is given to underprivileged communities who do not meet the requirements for receiving social assistance from the existing government, meaning that being registered as a recipient of PKH assistance does not meet the requirements, BPNT also does not meet the requirements, even for recipients of BLT village funds do not meet the requirements, they can get help through this program," he said.
