Joint Submission: Review of the NDIS SDA Pricing and Payments Framework

The Specialist Disability Accommodation Pricing and Payments Framework is a new and innovative approach to encouraging high quality accessible housing in the market via incentive payments linked to individual participants. The Framework has been welcomed as an important form of support under the NDIS for people with high and complex support needs, as it has the potential to create a contemporary disability housing market as part of the NDIS.

This submission is made jointly by more than 20 organisations that are advocates for people with disability or providers of SDA housing and experienced with the way the SDA Framework is operating. The submission outlines key concerns about the SDA Framework that are hampering the potential to build a diverse, innovative and responsive SDA market meeting the housing needs and preferences of participants.
