Empowerment in Poverty Alleviation During the Covid 19 Pandemic in Bener Meriah Regency is the subject of this research. The goal of this study is to learn more about the role of community empowerment in alleviating poverty during the COVID-19 epidemic in Bener Meriah Regency, as well as the challenges to community empowerment during the pandemic. The policy makers, stakeholders, and connected agencies involved with empowerment efforts in Bener Meriah Regency, such as the social service, UMKM service, and the Covid task force, were interviewed for this research. According to the findings of this study, during Covid 19, there were various obstacles from relevant agencies in carrying out various empowerment activities, which are usually on the agenda every year, in addition to the availability of costs and programs carried out by the district office due to limited funds due to refocusing Budget. So many community development activities that were planned never got off the ground. However, there are several independent programs that can be carried out by the community as a form of empowerment through the implementation of assistance for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (UMKM), the Family Hope Program (PKH) and Direct Cash Assistance (BLT) during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although not all people take advantage of these activities funds.
