Who Are We

RDA Mid North Coast (RDAMNC) is an independent not for profit organisation. Our funding is primarily from the Federal Government.  We are also funded on a project basis by the State Government of NSW, other government agencies.

Our team and Board are all local people, developing local solutions for the Mid North Coast (MNC) region.

The staff of RDAMNC have a variety of specialist skills to implement our core services and manage key projects. The staff are led by our Director of Regional Development and are governed by a Board.

Our Board is comprised of members from a variety of industries and interests across the MNC.

Our team works all throughout the region of the MNC encompassing the local government areas of Port Macquarie – Hastings, Kempsey Shire, Nambucca Shire, Bellingen Shire, Coffs Harbour, Midcoast Council, Lord Howe Island, and Norfolk Island.

The RDA is a national network of 50 committees across Australia’s capital cities and regions, including the Indian Ocean Territories, Norfolk Island and Jervis Bay Territory. RDAMNC is administered by the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts and is an Australian Government initiative.

RDAMNC is a voice and an advocate for the MNC region. We act as a link between all levels of government, industry and our community, analysing local priorities, communicating the issues clearly and bringing key players together to produce real outcomes for the region.

Our primary focus and projects are aligned with the needs of the region and the Australian Government’s Regional Investment Framework to invest in people, places, services and industry and local economies. RDAMNC is a collaborative organisation; we always work in partnership with others to achieve positive outcomes for the MNC.
