Regional Development Australia (RDA) is an established network of fifty-five committees across Australia, made up of local community leaders who are volunteers, to champion the development of long-term sustainable communities.
RDA operates as an incorporated association with funding from the Australian Government through the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications.
The RDA vision is to achieve a prosperous, sustainable, cohesive and liveable region.
RDA distributes a regular e-newsletter Community Connections to which anyone can subscrible through the website. The newsletter provides information on programs, grants, events and initiatives in the region.
