The study examines poverty alleviation agencies’ information campaigns and the information gained by the vulnerable in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. The study revealed majority of the indigenes lacked knowledge of poverty alleviation programmes’ information. The study, however, found that a positive correlation between social economic status (SES) variables and poverty alleviation programmes’ information knowledge exist at R=.843 and r2 value of.697 implying that 70% of poverty alleviation programme knowledge is influenced by SES factors. The finding is in conformity with United Nations Development Programme (Nigeria, UNDP, 2009) Human Development Report Nigeria 2008 to 2009). The study, therefore, recommends that the administrators of poverty alleviation agencies be excluded from central control and that the National Poverty Eradication Council and other stakeholders in the Niger Delta should ensure that the implementation of poverty alleviation programmes conform to the 1996 Federal Government of Nigeria community-based poverty alleviation approach known as Community Action Programme for Poverty Alleviation.
