This is a question we get a lot, and the simple answer is YES, we can build an NDIS home pretty much anywhere in Australia. For those that don’t know, the NDIS is providing funding for people to build customised homes. This part of the NDIS is called Specialist Disability Accommodation or SDA.
If you qualify for SDA funding, one of your most important considerations is where to build your new home.
Now, this is an important consideration for any Australian, we all want to live somewhere we like. Our lifestyle, interests and proximity to family are important considerations.
There are of course limitations on all of our choices. Money obviously dictates what’s possible.
This is true for any Australian and for NDIS recipients receiving SDA funding. SDA recipients have funding approved within their NDIS plan depending on their needs. SDA funding can range from $13,000 up to $90,000 per annum. This money is calculated on an annual basis and paid directly to the NDIS Housing Provider who builds your home.
