The background of this research came from Suntenjaya Village that succeeds in implementing the housing estate development program for low-income communities. Previously, that village had 41 uninhabitable houses. Afterward their houses became a pattern for this program. Actually, the program does not provide full aid; it only provides a stimulus for the people in the region affected by the program. It is expected that the program could ignite a sense of awareness of coming and working together by helping to repair the uninhabitable houses in the region, regarding finance and the rough. With regard to this, the Suntenjaya village has managed to make it happen, both in terms of the implementation of policies and the positive impact that may be caused by by the implementation of the policy.
