ARELLANO RIOS, Alberto; FLORES ASCENCIO, Santos Joel  and  PIEDRA ASCENCIO, Roberto Iván. Assessment of the Fondo de Aportaciones para la Infraestructura Social in San Pedro Tlaquepaque, Jalisco. Región y sociedad [online]. 2019, vol.31, e1037. ISSN 2448-4849.

This article analyzes the Fondo de Aportaciones para la Infraestructura Social in San Pedro Tlaquepaque, Jalisco, which provides the neediest population with basic services. For that purpose, a qualitative approach was used; in addition, an exhaustive review of all documents related to the Fondo, as well as six semi-structured interviews with the officials responsible for its implementation were conducted. It follows that the Fondo has positive aspects: productivity and projects completed, beneficiaries’ satisfaction, and resource efficiency and reinvestment; however, it also has negative aspects: deficiencies in training of collaborators, insufficient materials, flickering communication channels, lack of knowledge about normativity, and lack of measurement indicators. This article’s contribution is to analyze a sectoral and national policy, but considering territorial dimension in order to understand its implementation in a specific place, and thus to offer better results for beneficiaries.

Keywords : Fondo de Aportaciones para la Infraestructura Social; public policy; social welfare programs; social marginalization; state intervention; public expenditure; San Pedro Tlaquepaque.
