- Natural Resource Management (NRM)
- Health and Wellbeing
- Healthy Communities Toolkit
- Education, Training and Workforce Development
- Industry Development
- Local Government services

- Other issues identified by the Board or Councils, and agreed to by the Representatives
These initiatives contribute to the Cradle Coast region's vision of being a strong region of councils known for its positive people, sustainable economy, strategic thinking and the wellbeing of its communities.
