Abstract: Kediri is one of the cities in Indonesia which has a high poverty rate. This study aims to design an integrated program in poverty reduction in Kediri City, the percentage of poor people in Kediri City in 2018 was 7.68 percent, a decrease of 0.81 percent compared to conditions in 2017, namely 8.49 percent, This percentage is still better because it is below the achievements of the Province of East Java and the national level. There have been many poverty reduction programs implemented by the Kediri municipal government. However, the program is still ineffective because: 1) there is no coordination between agencies in running the program, and 2) the program does not reflect the needs of the poor to live properly in urban areas. The research used qualitative methods and was carried out in agencies related to poverty alleviation programs in Kediri City, namely the Research and Development Planning Agency (Barenlitbang), Bapemas and KB, the Cooperative and UMKM Office, Disperindag, Health Office, Manpower Office, Office Social, Education Officer, and Transportation Service. The data collection technique was carried out in 3 ways, namely observation, interviews, and documentation. The results of this study indicate that there are eight priority needs of the poor, namely (1) education, (2) social welfare, (3) health, (4) infrastructure and infrastructure, (5) food security, and (6) the environment. Of the eight priority needs of the poor, it is found that an integrated poverty reduction program design requires good coordination among related agencies.
