Provision of equitable and accessible basic services is the duty of the state to fulfill the rights of its people and the preservation of human life. Indonesia through the development priority village policy seeks to build villages that are lagging behind in various aspects including basic services. Using Village Potential (Podes) data for 2014-2018, this study aims to determine the impact of priority development village policy towards basic service facilities. Analysis using Propensity Score Matching and Double Difference shows that priority villages have a greater probability than nonpriority villages in providing basic service facilities.
