Frequently asked questions

To get SDA Housing, you must first be a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participant. Then check if your NDIS plan includes funding for SDA Housing. If you're not sure, talk to your support coordinator.

To be eligible for SDA Housing, you need to meet certain requirements:

  • You must be under 65 years old.
  • You have high support needs or an extreme functional impairment.
  • You can provide evidence that SDA will help meet your NDIS goals and offer opportunities to develop your skills.

If you want to know more about your eligibility, try our SDA eligibility calculator or call us to speak to one of our friendly SDA specialists.

If you're eligible for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) housing, your plan will have funding for it. The SDA payment goes directly to your SDA housing provider.

You'll still have to make a 'reasonable rent contribution. Your rent will be 25% of the basic Disability Support Pension (or equivalent for those who do not receive Disability Support Pension) plus 25% of your Pension Supplement and 100% of your Commonwealth Rental Assistance entitlement. You will handle your day-to-day living costs towards your bills, food and other personal items.

When it comes to SDA housing in the ACT, we support three distinct SDA design categories:

Improved Liveability Designed for people who have sensory, intellectual, or cognitive impairment. These properties are designed to not only make it easy to manoeuvre through the property, but the doorways, handles, and switches are all clearly visible to allow for seamless access.
Fully Accessible Designed for people with significant physical impairment. Wheelchair users will benefit from this design category as there are no steps in a Fully Accessible home. The doorways are wide, and the bathroom and kitchen are made to be used by people either in a seated or standing position.
High Physical Support This type of SDA home has all the amenities of a Fully Accessible SDA with additional features including provision for hoist if required and a backup UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) for important equipment when there is a power outage. Provisioning for AT in this category is more extensive, and you will be able to apply to have voice or remote-controlled doors, lights, and heating. specifically designed to ensure those with significant physical impairments and critical needs can access it effortlessly.

We pick our SDA housing by focusing on four key factors: location, amenities, size and transport. We choose locations where people want to live, ensuring our tenants are happy.

Our disability housing, ranging from apartments to houses, has great on-site amenities and are close to shops and cafes, promoting independence and community engagement.

Additionally, we pick places near public transport to cut down on travel costs and make getting around easier for our tenants. Click here to view our current range of open homes available in Canberra, ACT and across Australia.

Your SDA funding helps cover the cost of the actual property where you live, like the building itself. Your SIL or ILO (Individual Living Options) funding is for the support you get from people.

You can get these services on their own or at the same time. You don't need to live in an SDA housing to get SIL support.
