Govt Grants for Disability Housing
Wednesday, 9th December 2015 at 9:51 am

Not for Profits building or modifying disability housing can apply for a share of $10 million of new Commonwealth Government grants funding.

Minister for Social Services, Christian Porter, said the grants round is now open for community organisations to apply to complete housing projects outside NDIS trial sites.

“While housing is a state and territory responsibility, this funding is designed to help complete, modify or fit-out projects that would otherwise be delayed, or not delivered,” Porter said.

“Applicants should be incorporated, Not for Profit organisations that are supported by their local community. Where appropriate these organisations are encouraged to partner with for-profits, such as banks or builders, to ensure delivery of the projects.

“Accommodation will need to cater for people who are expected to be eligible for the NDIS into the future. Projects should have a particular focus on people currently housed in inappropriate accommodation and those with ageing carers who need a long-term, sustainable arrangement.

“All projects should be completed within two years to help address short-term community need while the NDIS transition gets under way."

Applications must be received by 11 February 2016 and successful projects will be announced in the first half of 2016.

Further information about the Specialist Disability Accommodation Initiative is available here.
