For people in the community with very high needs, securing suitable housing can be a challenge – but now, Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) aims to change this. SDA is available to participants of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) who are assessed as needing a special housing solution. It provides financial support to help people with high need disability to rent, buy or build a home that includes the support features that they need.

Specialist Disability Accommodation funding can be used for purchases directly relating to a dwelling that is designed for NDIS participants with high needs. This includes designs and features in both new builds and existing homes that make it possible for people needing a high level of support to live independently. Because many of the in-house services required can be complex and costly, SDA funding enables more dwellings to be built specifically to cater for people with disability. SDA funding cannot be used for services that are not directly associated with specialised housing as these are assessed and funded by the NDIS separately.
