In 2016 the Australian Government initiated an independent review of the Regional Development Australia (RDA) program.

Following careful consideration of the findings and recommendations contained in the review, the Australian Government is implementing a number of reforms to the RDA program. These reforms will be implemented over the coming months.

The RDA Committees are moving forward under a new charter which focuses on growing strong and confident regional economies that harness their competitive advantages and drive economic growth.

More information about the RDA reform, new charter and the independent review is available from the rda.gov.au website.
