Assistant Minister for Regional Development and Territories, the Hon Nola Marino MP, has announced the Australian Government’s recommitment to the RDA Network, including RDA Eyre Peninsula, under a new 4.5 year funding agreement and refreshed Charter.

“RDA Eyre Peninsula will continue to play an important role supporting the economic recovery of the region as it emerges from COVID-19 and recent bushfire/drought crises. RDAs are a highly valued and respected network of volunteers and staff who drive economic development in our regions and provide critical intelligence back to the Australian Government about key issues impacting local communities”, Mrs Marino said.

A refreshed RDA Charter will emphasise greater alignment across all levels of government and regional planning that identifies and advocates strategic long-term investment priorities.
