Most of the programs which assist people with a disability come under the Commonwealth State Disability Agreement (CSDA) of 1991. The Agreement sets out the types of disability support services to be provided or funded and specifies the responsibilities of the federal and state governments. In this article the author outlines the issues likely to be addressed in the lead up to the renewal of the Agreement in 1997 and changes which the Commonwealth government may seek to incorporate in the Agreement.
