Management of cultural heritage has been given special attention as it becomes the heart of sustainable development goals. The better management of cultural heritage leads to the eradication of poverty, and sustainable communities as well as the building of strong partnerships and institutions for development. This article examines one of the methods of cultural heritage management in Indonesia by involving the targeted community. Community involvement has multiplier effects as the preservation of the cultural heritages, Batik, is well integrated into tourism activities and the school curricula. This integration of the community involvement program (ICIP) benefits to elevate the economic scale of Batik and tourism industries as well as community awareness. The ICIP recommends that the ladder involvement including stepping activities and involved actors need to be properly determined to create a strong institutional partnership among stakeholders. However, it also depends on the government's political will to create a progressive policy.
