This study aims to identify the influence of the implementation of the Specific Purpose Grant (SPG) policy in achieving the national priorities in Banten Province. This study was conducted on the basis of a descriptive qualitative design by using interviews and observations for data collection. Findings indicate that the implementation of the SPG in primary education has provided maximum expected results. The factors that hinder the implementation of SPG activities in primary education are unrelated to technical factors but to financial policies at school. The objectives of SPG implementation in primary education have been realized, and the efforts made from the input, process, and output indicators are all satisfactory. Therefore, the expected influence is comparable to the efforts done. For secondary education, the implementation of SPG has not fully provided the expected results. The objective has only realized 50% of the target. The input, process, and output are satisfactory, and the graduation rates are close to 100%. The expected influence is comparable to the efforts done. Results suggest improvements on the Education Office through infrastructure, performance, inventory, and scope of SPG distribution.
