Specialist Disability Accommodation (or SDA) is a support that is available to eligible NDIS participants. It is a housing solution for people who require specialist accommodation solutions, and in particular for those with extreme functional impairment or very high support needs and who cannot live in mainstream housing.

Under new NDIS rules:

  • NDIS participants will be able to immediately apply for SDA without having to investigate other accommodation options first

  • The majority bedroom rule has been removed, allowing more properties to be enrolled as SDA and couples and siblings can now share a room

  • There will now ┬áprice certainty for NDIS participants making it easier for them to own their own SDA property
