The obtained conclusions were that the implementations of poverty alleviation policy in Lebak were optimal but not maximal. Implementations of poverty alleviation policy were judged quite optimal, since the implementations of the policy that apply in the form of Rural PNPM Mandiri successfully accommodate the aspirations, motivate and mobilize the potential of rural communities to jointly carry out activities such as the development of infrastructures of village road; and savings and loans for women. Policy implementatios of poverty alleviation in Lebak were not maximal, since the implementatios of the policy were not based on the support of budget resources, incentives of economic infrastructures and social networking infrastructure which  were needed to address the overall problems of rural poverty in disadvantaged areas. Those conclusions were reinforced by empirical findings that indicated weakness in the implementation of standards and policy objectives as well as the lack of the provision on budget resources and incentives.
