What is SDA?
Specialist disability accommodation (SDA) is a range of housing designed for people with extreme functional impairment or very high support needs. SDA dwellings have accessible features to help residents live more independently and allow other supports to be delivered better or more safely. SDA design categories include improved liveability, robust, fully accessible and high physical support.
SDA helps to stimulate the market to produce high quality, contemporary, accessible, well-designed housing for participants with SDA funding in their plan. SDA funding is paid directly to SDA providers to cover the building and maintenance costs. NDIS participants pay a reasonable rent contribution and other day-to-day living costs such as electricity bills.
