Welcome to the first RDA Central West e-newsletter for 2019 – jam packed with information on funding opportunities and events across the region. While we have some fantastic projects and events happening this year, we cannot ignore the fact that we are still in the grip of a terrible drought, intensified by record-breaking heat-waves.
NSW Government is offering a $100 voucher as a part of its Creative Kids program. The voucher is available for school children aged 4.5 to 18 years old with the aim of getting more kids involved in creative and cultural activities.

Regional Development Australia – Central West
Regional Development Australia Central West is a locally managed not-for-profit, part of the national network of 55 RDA Committees funded by the Australian Government, to promote economic development and a stronger NSW Central Western region. Our region extends from Lithgow in the east to Lake Cargelligo in the west and comprises the local government areas of Lithgow, Oberon, Bathurst, Blayney, Orange, Cabonne, Cowra, Parkes, Forbes, Weddin and Lachlan.
We acknowledge and respect the traditional owners and custodians of this region, the Wiradjuri people. We honour their cultural, spiritual, and emotional connection to this land & acknowledge the many other Aboriginal people from other nations and lands who have come to the Central West to live or visit.
