SDA Housing Categories
Each level of SDA has its own level of requirements which are reflected in our modern Forever Homes to be registered with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).
The 4 required levels of SDA categories which can be approved in NDIS Plans are: IMPROVED LIVABILITY, FULLY ACCESSIBLE, ROBUST, and HIGH PHYSICAL SUPPORT. Secure Housing Australia Pty. Ltd. facilitates Forever homes for single or multiple Participants in all 4 categories.
Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) refers to the accommodation that can be funded under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) for eligible Participants who have extreme functional impairment or very high support needs.
SDA funding assists Participants to acquire specialist disability housing solutions, in particular ongoing funding to enable them to pay to live in a purpose-built SDA home. Rental payments are made to the registered Provider on behalf of the owner of an SDA property by the NDIA, when an SDA Participant is living in the home.
10 Year Rental Agreements are permissible with Participants under the NDIS guidelines.
Each accommodation category level is registered with the NDIA to meet what is known as the Livable Housing Australia standard levels. Each house is designed to meet the 4 required levels of accessibility and support with each category approved by the NDIS for all future funding.
Housing that has been designed to improve ‘liveability’ by incorporating a reasonable level of physical access and enhanced provision for people with sensory, intellectual or cognitive impairment
Housing that has been designed to incorporate a high level of physical access provision for people with significant physical impairment.
Housing that has been designed to incorporate a reasonable level of physical access provision and be very resilient, reducing the likelihood of reactive maintenance and reducing the risk to the participant and the community.
High Physical Support
Housing that has been designed to incorporate a high level of physical access provision for people with significant physical impairment and requiring very high levels of support.
