RDA Mid North Coast (RDAMNC) provides a number of services to help our regional stakeholders prepare a strong economic arguement in their applications for funding.
1. Be aware of funding opportunities
You can regularly check this link and see what funding may be available and what grants are closing soon.
2. Support your applications with statistical evidence
RDAMNC provides free access to the powerful REMPLAN regional data web tools. These apps provide a huge amount of statistical evidence about our industries, workforce, population, businesses and more. This information is provided at a regional level as well as a local government area specific level.
3. Letters of support
Certain funding programmes may advise applicants to seek a letter of support from their RDA. Letters of support are generally provided for projects that (a) have strong employment outcomes; (b) are for priority infrastructure that will build capacity within an industry, or (c) directly address an identified priority in the RDAMNC Regional Plan. Please be aware we appreciate a minimum of 7 days notice to prepare letters of support. Call us for more information on 02 5525 1500.
4. Grant writing and fee for service
There are times when you may be too short on time to put forward a competitive grant application, or where the scale of the application warrants investment in a professional report on the economic benefits of a project. RDA Mid North Coast invests in the REMPLAN economic modelling system which analyses the latest data for the Mid North Coast region, its council areas, industries, workforce, population and more. We employ research analysts and grant writers who can produce highly competitive reports and grant applications at an affordable fee for service rate. Contact RDAMNC for more information on
