NDIS Accommodation FAQs

What is NDIS Accommodation?

NDIS accommodation is designed to meet the specific needs of NDIS participants.

NDIS accommodation will take into account factors such as their level of support needs, their goals, and their preferred living arrangements.

There are a range of NDIS accommodation options available, including short and medium term accommodation, as well as specialist disability accommodation.

Can I choose my own NDIS accommodation provider?

You certainly can!

Participants have the right to choose their own NDIS-approved accommodation provider. The NDIS works with eligible accommodation providers to find a home that meets your needs and desired living arrangements. If you are working with a support coordinator, they will be able to help you through this process.

Does NDIS pay for accommodation?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will fund suitable accommodation for eligible participants as part of their overall support arrangements.

In order to meet participant needs and help them achieve their goals, NDIS accommodation funding covers a range of accommodation-related costs. These include rent, utilities and property modifications.

However, the exact amount of funding that a participant will receive depends on their individual circumstances, such as their level of support needs and their preferred living arrangements.

How does NDIS funding work for accommodation?

Once you have been assessed and approved for funding, a support plan will be created for your individual needs.

From there, you have a right to choose your own accommodation, subject to NDIS funding and eligibility criteria.

NDIS funding for accommodation is provided on a package basis, which means that you receive a set amount of funding each year to cover the cost of your support needs, including accommodation-related expenses.

Whether this funding is paid directly to the you or to your nominated service provider will be outlined in your support plan.
