Applying for SDA: eligibility and evidence for positive outcomes

Build your understanding of the evidence required for an application for specialist disability accommodation (SDA). This workshop is valuable if you’re working for people who may be SDA eligible, as you will need to provide the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) with supporting evidence that addresses the SDA eligibility criteria, set out in the SDA Rules (2020).

This workshop assumes you have good working knowledge of SDA including what it is, how it is separate to support and how it is different to mainstream housing. We will focus on the SDA Rules (2020), SDA eligibility and the evidence required for an SDA application.

This is an interactive workshop. There will be practical exercises, group discussion and opportunity for questions and answers.

Learning objectives – after this workshop you will be able to:

  • Apply the SDA Rules and eligibility criteria
  • Identify the types of supporting evidence required to support SDA requests
  • Work with other professionals to source and collect evidence for SDA
  • Write a housing report addressing the SDA Rules
  • Complete a Home and Living supporting evidence form for an SDA application
  • Use new knowledge of NDIS decision-making to inform your applications
  • Support coordinators
  • NDIS allied health professionals
  • Professionals assisting people with complex support needs
