Frequently Asked Questions:
Am I Eligible?
NDIS Participants can appoint a Support Coordinator through their plan to help with an assessment and application for SDA funding. The exploration of eligibility can be funded through your NDIS plan from either Core Supports, or your Therapy budget. If these are not available, participants can request a plan review and have a Housing Exploration Goal added to their plan.

Can my family & friends visit me in the SDA property?
Of course! We encourage ongoing informal and family relationships to continue as much as possible. This is your home, and you should treat it as such. Enable WA and the SDA provider will do everything they can to support participants with this.
Can I make decisions about the SDA Property and the SIL Service?
All participants and any interested family members/guardians will meet quarterly with the SDA Provider and SIL provider to review the services and adjust if necessary to ensure that all services to our clients are meeting the highest standards.
What kind of properties are available?
Enable WA’s projects include single occupancy apartments, multiple occupancy apartments, shared houses, villas and townhouses. All properties comply with the rigorous SDA design standards, which include the necessary infrastructure and assistive technology available to provide participants with maximum independence, safety and security.
How long can I stay in my SDA property?
SDA is a long-term housing option and with negotiation could be your forever home as long as you are SDA eligible.
How does the SDA payment work?
The SDA funds are attached to the participants NDIS plan. Once the participant identifies their preferred property, the SDA Provider will create a service agreement and a service booking against the participants plan, just like other service providers. It’s all done through the NDIS portal.
Who provides my support in SDA?
Enable WA are the designated SIL provider for the property. Participants can also choose Enable WA to provide their Social Community and Civic Participation to make a seamless service. Alternatively, participants can choose another agency to provide Social Community and Civic Participation.
What is the Reasonable Rent Contribution (RRC)?
In addition to the SDA payment allocated in your plan, a reasonable rent contribution is paid from your Disability Pension. This should be no more than 25% of your total pension per fortnight.
