Recently, Indonesia prioritized education for everyone to reach the United Nation’s sustainable development goals (SDGs). Generally, central and regional governments have the authority to implement education to achieve fair and inclusive education nationwide. To enhance the overall quality of education, regional governments are implementing the Regional School Operational Assistance (Bantuan Operasional Sekolah Daerah, BOSDA) program. This program is a school operational assistance program that provides middle and elementary schools with funds from the regional budget for operational expenses. Hence, Bekasi municipal government decided to make BOSDA available to both public schools and madrasas. Local governments rarely support madrasas through BOSDA because madrasas are considered the concern of the central government. This study uses a postpositivist descriptive approach to analyze the effectiveness of this BOSDA program in education in madrasas in the Bekasi Municipality. The results of this study showed that the BOSDA program implemented in Madrasah Ibtidaiyah Negeri Bekasi Municipality and Madrasah Tsanawiyah Negeri 1 Bekasi Municipality is fairly effective in helping madrasas develop their infrastructure and human resources. This study is expected to encourage other regions to take part in developing madrasas, thereby contributing to enhancing the overall access to education and achieving comprehensive education equality throughout Indonesia.
