The Australian Government is providing $5.9 million over the next two years to the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) to strengthen NDIS services within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
Minister for the NDIS, Stuart Robert, says the release of new data on Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) will further stimulate the market and ensure better long-term options for Australians needing specialised housing solutions.
The Australian Government remains committed to achieving the best outcomes for all Australians and businesses by delivering essential services and support to those in need as part of our Economic Recovery Plan for Australia. Minister for the NDIS, Stuart Robert, said this commitment is reflected in the 2020-21 Budget, which supports the Government’s tireless work in sustaining and improving the services provided to Australians.
Temporary measures introduced earlier this year to ensure National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants continue to access their essential disability supports during the COVID-19 pandemic will be extended.
The Commonwealth has provided an update on NDIS participants and workforce and COVID-19 for Thursday, 1 October 2020.
