What is SDA?

Facilitating Scalable SDA Solutions.

By providing the important link between the Participant, Service Providers, and Investment Capital, ADAPT Housing are building a wide range of specialist disability homes for people with extreme functional impairment or very high needs.

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) refers to accommodation that receives special funding from the NDIS and is for participants who have extreme functional impairment and/or very high support needs. Unlike other NDIS Supports, SDA is funded for the ‘Bricks and Mortar’ homes in which other services are delivered.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme ‘NDIS’ provides SDA funding for people with extreme functional impairment, and / or very high support needs. Generally, this is only a small percentage (6%) of people already on an NDIS Plan and will be based on a eligibility criteria.

ADAPT Housing have relationships with specialist providers who prepare ‘housing solution reports’ for participants. If you don’t already have SDA in your plan fill in our Participant Expression of Interest Form and we can recommend you to Specialist Report Writers.

We are always looking to work with ethically-minded investors to deliver socially conscious outcomes for NDIS Participants. If you are interested in developing an SDA Investment property with ADAPT you can fill in an Project Expression of interest by following the link.
