About The RDA
is a development agency covering Lake and Porter counties in Northwest Indiana. We have been given four tasks by the state General Assembly: redevelop the Lake Michigan shoreline in accordance with the Marquette Plan; expand the Gary/Chicago International Airport; develop and support regional passenger rail and bus transportation; and enhance economic development Northwest Indiana. Since 2005, the RDA, Northwest Indiana communities, and for-profit and non-profit partners have invested or committed approximately $210 million toward these goals. This investment has directly leveraged more than $540 million in additional local, federal and private funds. Overall, these projects have created or supported more than 2,000 permanent and construction jobs and had a total economic impact of more than $1.1 billion since 2006.
