This study aims to determine the effect of the General Allocation Fund (DAU) and the Special Allocation Fund (DAK) on the regional expenditure of the City Government of Tidore Islands. This research was conducted considering that regional expenditures have been used for routine expenditures which are relatively less productive.

The Special Allocation Fund has a positive and insignificant effect on the realization of regional expenditure in the City Government of Tidore Islands in 2016-2018. The General Allocation Fund and the Special Allocation Fund together have a positive and significant effect on the Regional Expenditure Realization of the Tidore Islands City government in 2016-2018.
