Three important new SDA documents were released in October:
• SDA Design Standards – clarifies design requirements for SDA
• SDA Innovation Plan – outlines what the NDIA will do over the next 18 months to encourage innovation in SDA
• SDA Limited Cost Assumptions Review report – a review done by the NDIA in response to concerns about pricing for some types and locations of SDA
Disability Services Consulting explains these reports in this article.
Earlier this year the government made a number of important SDA rule changes, outlined in this document.
The Summer Foundation looks forward to seeing more changes expected in 2020, which will reduce barriers and disincentives for families to live together in SDA.
