Examining a large social funds project in Tanzania, we find that project applications are much more likely to come from wards in richer districts. This regressive pattern in applications is strongly correlated with access to media and information, as well as political activity measured by voter registration and turnout rates.
That is from this interesting paper by Baird et al.
