What is Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA)?

Specialist Disability Accommodation or SDA is for people with very high needs who need specialist accommodation.

Specialist Disability Accommodation provides funding to cover the costs of changes to a person’s home and physical environment so that they can live and receive their day-to-day supports.

Specialist Disability Accommodation homes have a maximum of five people living in a single property.

What does the NDIS fund?

Specialist Disability Accommodation funding is not for the support services you receive while living in the home. This is funded separately by the NDIS through Supported Independent Living.

Funding for Specialist Disability Accommodation is specifically to cover the cost of changes needed to the housing – including the land it is on – as well as ongoing costs such as maintenance.

The amount of funding you receive in your NDIS plan will depend on a range of factors. These factors can include the type of building you need, how many people you will live with, where you live, and other factors.

NDIS participants will be expected to make a reasonable rent contribution. Any board that the participant pays will be negotiated with the provider and will not include the rent contribution.
