The Ada support is only a matter of the tool chain.

I don't know a evaluation board with debugger for $100.  For $169 you 
get this:

You can develop a BSP for the LM3S8962. We already support the LM3S6965 
on the Qemu simulator.  You can play around with this BSP on Qemu to do 
your first steps with Ada and learn more about the system initialization 
of RTEMS.  You can then write step-by-step a BSP for the LM3S8962.
