Empowerment is an effort to raise awareness and develop community potential in order to increase capacity that will allow the community to get out of poverty on the basis of their own abilities. In order for the realization of community empowerment, the government through the Pemberdayaan dan Kesejahteraan Keluarga (PKK) organization formed the Family Income Development Program or Usaha Peningkatan Pendapatan Keluarga (UP2K-PKK). This research was conducted in the City of Banjarbaru with the aim to describe and analyze the form of empowerment being applied in the UP2K-PKK Program. Indicators of community empowerment used in this research were the six dimensions of empowerment according to Stewart and community impact of empowerment according to Kuncoro.
