Specialist Disability Accommodation Rules released

Businessperson holding files

15/03/2017

The Rules for funding Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) within the NDIS have been presented to Parliament.  If no disallowance motion is received within 15 sitting days, the Rules automatically become law. It is pleasing that SDA payments will soon start to flow.

The SDA Rules define eligibility to receive SDA funding; the types of dwellings that can be used for SDA (covering new buildings, existing stock and legacy stock); and the registration of SDA providers. SDA is a narrowly-targeted payment: to be eligible, participants must have an ‘extreme functional impairment’ or ‘very high support needs’.
