Program Keluarga Harapan, hereinafter referred to as PKH, is a program of providing conditional social assistance to poor families who are designated as PKH beneficiary families in the health and education sector. PKH was first implemented in Indonesia in 2007 managed by the Ministry of Social Affairs, with close supervision by the National Development Planning Agency. In Riau Province, especially in Pekanbaru City, PKH was started in 2013 in 8 (eight) Districts. It was only in 2015 that the 12 (twelve) Districts in Pekanbaru City implemented PKH. However, after several years running, PKH implementation is still deemed ineffective in reducing poverty in Pekanbaru City. In addition, there are several problems related to the implementation of PKH in Pekanbaru City. One of them is the number of PKH participants who do not meet the criteria or requirements as “Keluarga Penerima Manfaat” (PKM) that have been stipulated in the Technical Guidelines for “Program Keluarga Harapan”. This study aims to see the extent of PKH effectiveness in poverty reduction in Pekanbaru City, Riau Province. The method used in this research is a qualitative method with a descriptive approach. Based on the research that has been done, it can be seen that PKH is still not effective in poverty reduction in Pekanbaru City. This is indicated by the poverty rate which is increasing from year to year in Pekanbaru City. Keywords: Effectiveness, Program Keluarga Harapan, Poverty
