Ignite Mini’s 2024

Industry & Economy People Places Services In Progress

The RDA MNC Minis are three in-person events designed to relaunch the new Regional Investment Framework (RIF) and provide opportunity for consultation on the priority areas of the RIF and other key aspects for our Mid North Coast Region.

RIF is a new approach to how the Australian Government delivers regional investment. The priority focus areas include Investing in People, Investing in Places, Investing in Services and Investing in Industries and Local Economies. Other key aspects for our Ignite Mini include launching the revised MNC Strategic Plan Workforce, Early Childhood Education and Care, Regional Innovation Program and Migration.
