Medium Term Accommodation (MTA)

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. 

The NDIS funds medium term accommodation so you have somewhere to live if you can’t move into your long term home because your disability supports aren’t ready. To be eligible, you must have a home you’ll move into and you need somewhere else to live in the medium-term. Medium term accommodation is usually funded for up to 90 days.
