MTA - what is it/how to access


Funding for Medium Term Accommodation (MTA) is available to NDIS participants who require temporary transitional housing while they wait for their permanent home to become ready or available for use. Typical examples of where MTA might be used include:

  • bridging accommodation for younger participants who are at risk of being admitted to aged care, or those who wish to leave aged care, while they wait for home modifications or identified specialist disability accommodation 

  • participants who are ready to leave hospital but are waiting for disability-related home modifications to be completed on their house

  • participants who have been found eligible for specialist disability accommodation but are waiting on a vacancy or build to be completed. 

MTA funding is paid from a participant’s NDIS plan under Core Supports and covers daily accommodation costs only for a period of up to three months. The cost of receiving care is separate and paid separately to the service provider who delivers support staff.  The Disability Housing Centre may be able to offer a vacancy in our SDA certified homes on a transitional arrangement in some situations.  If you think this may be a suitable option for you or someone you are supporting, please speak with our housing facilitator for further information.
