Program Partners

Australian Local Government Association (ALGA)

The Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) is the national voice of local government, representing 537 councils across the country.

Our department collaborates with ALGA and their National General Assembly, Australian Council of Local Government and National Local Government Awards (NALA).

Through this arrangement and by direct engagement, RDA committees also play an important role in working across all 3 levels of government to develop locally-led solutions that help create opportunity for Australia’s regions.

Our department also consults with ALGA on policy and program matters, whilst providing secretariat support to the Local Government Ministers Forum. For further information, please contact: or
