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.
