RDA Committees in Victoria are funded by the Australian and Victorian Governments and administered by the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development and Regional Development Victoria. There are nine Committees in Victoria including five rural/regional RDA Committees and four metropolitan RDAs covering greater Melbourne.

RDA Committees comprise local leaders with broad and diverse skills and experience, as well as demonstrated networks within their region. Committee members are individuals who understand the challenges, opportunities and priorities within their local community. The RDA Committees in Victoria are unincorporated advisory committees supported by professional staff employed by the Victorian government.

In Victoria RDA Committees work in partnership with Regional Development Victoria and the Regional Managers Forum, ensuring integrated and aligned arrangements for regional engagement and economic development in the state and regional communities.

In Victoria RDA Committees:

  • 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.

Further information on the role of RDA Committees in Victoria can be found at the Regional Development Victoria website.
