If you’re moving to a new location and need some help finding NDIS short-term accommodation, our short-term accommodation guide is the resource you need.
What is Short-term accommodation
Short-term accommodation funding is a government program that provides financial assistance for people experiencing homelessness to try and get into an approved state or private short stay residential solution. The goal is to give people choices about where they can stay, providing them with better outcomes for their health and wellbeing. If you need to take some time out of your home environment, NDIS short term accommodation can be a great way to help you to get away.
NDIS Funding for Short-Term Accommodation
The NDIS funds short-term accommodation for eligible participants under the Core Support category Assistance with Daily Living. This funding generally includes rent or bond and covers costs such as household furnishings, home maintenance, cooking equipment and food items.
The NDIS will fund a maximum of 28 days of short term accommodation per year. This means you can choose whether you want to use it all at once, or spread it out over the year.
If you need short-term accommodation in a supported accommodation the NDIA may fund your stay. If you already have funding in your core budget, you can use this for short-term accommodation.
