About RDA

Who we are

Our network

Our network is made up of local leaders who work across government, business and community groups all with the goal to improve their local region. This is achieved by supporting economic and workforce development, local procurement, strategic regional planning and informing government programs and infrastructure investments.

An Australian Government initiative

This Australian Government initiative brings together all levels of government and is funded by the Australian Government and by state, territory and local governments in some jurisdictions.


The RDA program is administered by the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts.
