10. Where does the money for the RDAs come from?
Since April 2002, RDAs have been financed through a Single Programme. Monies from the contributing Departments (DTI, ODPM, DfES, DEFRA and DCMS) are pooled into one single budget. The funding, once allocated, is available to the RDAs to spend as they see fit to achieve the regional priorities identified in their Regional Economic Strategies and the challenging targets set by them in their Corporate Plans.
