The declining social life of the community, especially in the economic aspect, is one of the impacts of Covid-19 pandemic in Indonesia. The government imposed a policy of Large-Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB) which caused many companies to go out of business and unemployment stood at 8.75 million people, so it is certain that the poverty rate will also increase. The role of the National Amil Zakat Agency (BAZNAS) as an institution that collects and also distributes zakat and infaq funds is very important in this condition. The distribution of Zakat and Infaq funds becomes more productive and has a positive impact on the affected communities. This is evidenced in this study which concludes that the receipt of Zakat and Infaq funds is directly proportional and has a significant influence on their distribution in the social sector. The method used in this study is a quantitative approach by taking a sample of 42 data contained in the financial statements of BAZNAS from January 2018 to June 2021. This study confirms that the distribution of Zakat and Infaq funds in the social sector can help encourage the rate of poverty in Indonesia.
