FAQ’s

What is SIL funding?

Supported Independent Living funding (SIL) is the funding given to the provider to provide 24/7 support within the group home 7 days per week. It provides support/supervision to the individual to complete the tasks of daily living. It provides support to the person to participate in the running of their home and community activities. It helps the person to live as independently as possible.

What is not covered by SIL?

  • Rent, Board and Lodging
  • Transport
  • Household budgeting re: personal activities
  • Expenses related to holidays
  • Personal care supports if hospitalised
  • Items covered in other sections of the NDIS price guide

How do I get SIL funding?

Have a Goal in their NDIS plan relating to seeking housing (either first or second goal).

Engage an Occupational Therapist to develop a Functional Assessment Report. They will often require around 15-20 hours of funding from the Improved Daily Living category. This report will need to address why a person is unable to access other suitable housing options (social housing/private rental). If a person is currently living with family the report needs to identify why this is not sustainable (for example aging parents).

Psychology/GP report indicating that from a psychological perspective the person is a suitable candidate for supported living environment.

A Support Coordinator will also need to submit a detailed Housing Solutions Report that summarises all the information and identifies transition plan for move into supported living.

Engage with a Provider who has a vacancy.

What is SDA funding?

Specialist Disability Accommodation funding

Looks at the bricks and mortar of the home

Focusing on accessibility of the property and on-going maintenance

There is an eligibility assessment and it is currently estimated 6% of people in the NDIS are eligible for SDA

What happens if I have no Funding?

In order to get appropriate funding the participant is required to have a goal in their NDIS plan relating to seeking housing. This needs to be listed as either the first or the second goal.

Once this goal has been identified the NDIS should then provide funding in the Improved Daily Living and Support Coordination to allow for the appropriate report writing.

If you have not listed this as a goal but are seeking accommodation you can apply for a “Change of Circumstances” with the NDIS.
