South Australia

RDA Boards in South Australia are a unique tripartite partnership between the Australian and South Australian Governments, and the Local Government Association of South Australia on behalf of its members. They are administered by the Australian Government Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development, the South Australian Department of Primary Industries and Regions SA, and the Local Government Association of South Australia.

In South Australia there are eight RDA Boards covering all areas of the state including metropolitan Adelaide. South Australia's unique funding model includes substantial financial contributions by all three levels of government as well as in-kind support and cooperation.

RDA Boards in South Australia have had considerable success in developing and delivering collaborative projects which support the economic development of their regions and the state more broadly.

In South Australia RDA Boards:

  • are responsible for detailed regional plans that focus on the economic development of their region, taking into account relevant Commonwealth, state, territory and local government plans
  • provide independent advice to all three levels of Government on critical issues affecting their region
  • work closely with community leaders to identify funding sources and develop project proposals to support economic growth
  • provide assistance to local communities to develop project proposals to support economic growth, and
  • promote awareness of government programmes in the RDA community.

Some RDA Boards in South Australia also deliver a range of services and programmes on behalf of other state and Australian Government departments.

Further information can be found at the South Australian Department of Primary Industries and Regions website and the Local Government Association of South Australia website.
