Victoria secures NDIS funding certainty

Published

Victoria has settled a bitter feud with the Commonwealth over National Disability Insurance Scheme funding after signing a long-term agreement with the federal government.  

Under the agreement signed this week, Victoria will contribute around $2.5 billion a year to the NDIS until at least mid-2023.

The rest of the scheme’s costs will be covered by the Commonwealth, with the state to be provided $2.4 billion from a special fund that reimburses governments for NDIS expenditure.

The move makes Victoria the sixth state or territory to sign a full scheme agreement with the NDIS, which is currently completing its final rollout across Victoria.
