What is Medium Term Accommodation (MTA)?

MTA is an NDIS-funded service where supported accommodation is offered for people living with disabilities who are covered by NDIS. It allows extended stays at the various properties maintained by NDIS-registered service providers. The medium-term accommodation is under the “core support category” of the NDIS plan. This provides a safe and comfortable place or housing solution for people living with a disability. The participants can move on to their homes after their stay at the MTA property.

Medium Term Accommodation Funding

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding for medium term accommodation to eligible participants. If you are an NDIS participant, you will need to check if you have a budget allocation for MTA in your plan. Your assessed needs and goals at the time of plan preparation affect the amount of funding.

MTA funding is typically provided for up to 90 days, but in certain circumstances, it can be extended beyond this period. If participants need to stay longer, they should discuss it with the NDIS. Funding for MTA covers only the accommodation costs during the stay. It does not include day-to-day living expenses like food, internet, or electricity. Personal care support and other supports received at home are funded separately.

If you are not sure about your eligibility, funding, or allocation, we can help. You can reach out to our NDIS plan management team for assistance on every aspect of MTA funding. There are several requirements to qualify for funding for MTA through the NDIS, such as:

  • Significant or Permanent Disability: To be eligible, the participant must have a significant or permanent disability. The disability should be affecting the ability of the participant to take care of everyday activities. There should also be an identified need for substantial support for a significant period.

  • Age criteria: The person must be between 7-65 years of age. If you are above 65, then you may be eligible for other funding for MTA.

  • Citizenship criteria: The MTA funding under NDIS is available only to an Australian citizen, a permanent resident, or someone holding a protected special category visa.

  • No other funding: You should not be taking benefit of any other type of government funding program that covers MTA.
