What is SDA?
Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is the home that a person lives in. It is the physical building, the ‘bricks and mortar’ that has been approved by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). It is not the other supports (i.e. daily living assistance and therapy) that are provided by people.
If you or your client are assessed as eligible for Specialist Disability Accommodation, you will need to apply for SDA funding which will then be included in your NDIS plan to cover any disability related housing costs. You may also be eligible for medium term accommodation (MTA) while your long term housing funding is being processed.
