This paper examines how collective remittances contribute to regional development by using the community-level two-year panel data for the states of Jalisco and Zacatecas in Mexico, which have received the higher amounts of the budget of the Program 3×1 for Migrants. The results from empirical analyses show that the communities that received this program became better-off between 2000 and 2005, according to the marginalization level. Further analyses suggest that specifically investment in roads, water supply, and non-agricultural productive projects by the 3×1 program improved community welfare. The regression results on access to the program show, however, that neither the marginalization level nor the migration level determined the access to the program. This suggests that the 3×1 program was not necessarily targeted at the communities with higher marginalization and migration levels.
