    O presente trabalho tem como objetivo investigar a ação do Programa Nacional de Fortalecimento da Agricultura Familiar (PRONAF) em um âmbito territorial e verificar a existência de impactos socioeconômicos desta política nas economias dos municípios do território Médio Jequitinhonha. Assim, este trabalho visou avaliar a incidência territorial de uma política pública, neste caso o PRONAF, em termos dos impactos em economias fortemente caracterizadas por atividades rurais e com um grande contingente de agricultores familiares. Por meio do instrumental estatístico de Dados em Painel, analisou-se os impactos dos créditos do PRONAF nas principais variáveis econômicas dos municípios do território. Os resultados alcançados indicam que o PRONAF vem contribuindo para o desenvolvimento das economias locais, em especial naqueles municípios com grande demanda por estes créditos, que servem como fonte de liquidez para a movimentação de suas atividades econômicas.
