The RDA ACT Committee is funded by the Australian Government and administered by the Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities.

There is a single RDA Committee for the Australian Capital Territory (ACT).

RDA ACT's scope of operations is focused on the ACT region, but it has a close working relationship with surrounding local governments in New South Wales (NSW), and with the Australian Government, in order to progress mutually beneficial outcomes for stakeholders and residents in the ACT and the greater South East NSW region.

The RDA ACT Committee is responsible for:

  • providing independent advice to all three levels of Government on critical issues affecting their region
  • collaborate with relevant stakeholders to identify economic opportunities and leverage private and public sector investment to the regions,
  • connect regional businesses, councils and industry sectors with international trade partners, financial markets and potential investors,
  • working closely with community leaders to identify funding sources and developing project proposals to support economic growth
  • providing assistance to local communities to develop project proposals to support economic growth, and
  • promoting awareness of government programmes in the RDA community.

The RDA ACT Regional Plan acknowledges the importance of the ACT and Canberra's three dimensions—as a city in its own right, as the nation's capital, and in its role as a hub of the region. RDA ACT's scope of operations is focused on the ACT region, but it has a close working relationship with surrounding local governments in New South Wales (NSW), and with the Australian Government, in order to progress mutually beneficial outcomes for stakeholders and residents in the ACT and the greater South East NSW region.
