The NDIA has a role in encouraging a healthy and diverse market place for disability services and supports and continues to seek ways to better support the development of the Specialist Disability Accomodation (SDA) sector.

The NDIA agrees that more information will assist participants, providers and investors to make more informed decisions.

This page will be expanded and updated quarterly as the NDIA is works to increase the type and frequency of SDA information, including more detailed data on SDA supply and demand.

The transition to full scheme is ongoing. The NDIA considers 28,000 to be the best current estimate of the number of participants who will be found eligible for SDA funding under the NDIS. However as an estimate, this may change over time as participants enter the Scheme and have their NDIS plans made.
