Medium Term Accommodation funding

A new type of transitional housing funding was announced in December. Medium Term Accommodation (MTA) funding is intended to support NDIS participants while they wait for their permanent home to be ready. 

Announcing the new funding, the Minister for the NDIS, Stuart Robert, said: ‘We don’t want people in hospital or aged care settings any longer than they have to be and by introducing funding for medium term accommodation, we’re addressing those challenges.

Mr Robert said MTA also responded to a number of key COAG Disability Reform Council commitments and would help deliver on the government’s target of no new younger people entering residential aged care by 2022.

MTA has been introduced into the NDIS Price Guide as a new support item. The Summer Foundation is currently seeking more information about this funding stream.
