Introduction: This study was based on the absence of policy innovation for the poor's empowerment to increase the government's public charging in the new normal. The existence of poor people who are neglected on the streets or who live alone raises general problems. Purpose: This study examines the strengthening of the empowerment of low-income families from various sectors in ensuring the quality of the welfare of the neglected poor. Methods: The method of this study is a descriptive study using qualitative research methods. The data used are primary data and secondary data obtained through observation, interviews, and documentation. Results: This study's results to innovate the poor's empowerment policy to increase public charging of the local government show that the provincial government's strategy has not been running well. This is because some social services have not been implemented, such as providing life insurance, education, health, and material needs in fulfilling life's demands. Conclusion: The institutional human resources from the government are urgently needed in implementing appropriate policy innovations. The quality of welfare services for the low-income family is still lacking and rarely paid attention by the government; therefore, the government's budget resource is a better way to overcome the problems.
