Specialist Disability Accommodation

Some Australians living with disability require access to Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) in order to best meet their needs. This may be due to physical needs, or requiring high levels of support. From July 1 2016, eligible participants requiring access to SDA will have funding included in their plan to cover any disability-related housing costs that are above the ordinary costs of housing.

This SDA funding is not intended to cover support costs, which are assessed and funded separately by the NDIS. It is an adjusted contribution to the cost of the physical building, including the land it is on. This contribution will ensure that participants don't have to pay more for their homes because of their disability.
