The National disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a scheme of the  Australian Government that funds costs associated  with disability.  The Scheme was legislated in 2013 and is now in full operation and is being rolled out by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), is a Commonwealth Government body responsible for the national roll out of Special Disability Accommodation (SDA) on behalf of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

SDA is housing that has been specifically designed to meet the needs of people who have very high support needs resulting from their disability. The NDIA budget is committed at $700 million per annum, for 20 years, of an NDIS annual budget of $20 Billion, and is to be spent creating and maintaining Housing for 28,000 participants with the highest needs.

The NDIA estimates that of the 28,000 participants that will have housing funding, around 12,000 participants do not have an appropriate home.

These may include people living at home with aging careers, or young persons in residential aged care facilities (RACF).

To meet this demand, the NDIA has estimated that between 500 and 900 new properties will need to be  constructed each year for the next 10 years.
