In-kind funding arrangements

In-kind is a temporary funding arrangement.

Under these arrangements, state, territory and / or Commonwealth governments pre-pay providers to deliver some disability-related programs.

When NDIS participants use these programs, we call the pre-paid supports they get ‘in-kind’.

Providers delivering in-kind supports have been paid in advance by the government, so must not claim payments from participants as well.

Your state, territory and / or Commonwealth government will have previously told you if you deliver in-kind supports.
