The RDAs were funded by six different central government departments, those being:
- Department for Business, Innovation and Skills
- Department for Communities and Local Government
- Department for Energy and Climate Change
- Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
- Department for Culture, Media and Sport
- UK Trade and Investment
The funding from these departments was pooled, and then allocated to the different RDAs. The total funding known as the 'Single Pot' was as below.
- 2006/2007 — £2.244 billion
- 2007/2008 — £2.297 billion
- 2008/2009 — £2.193 billion
- 2009/2010 — £2.260 billion
- 2010/2011 — £1.760 billion
In 2009 a study by accountants PriceWaterhouseCoopers showed that RDAs were generating £1 for the local economy for every £1 of public spending, though this figure was estimated to rise to £4.50 when long-term investments in infrastructure matured.
