To Provide SDA Property for Australians Living with a Disability.


An estimated 28,000 people require Specialised Disability Housing to be built. This number is growing every year and so your SDA Property investment will have ongoing demand for years to come.



The Federal Government has announced all people under 45 currently in Nursing Homes will be put into SDA Housing within 3 years and all people under 65 into SDA Housing within 6 years.


The estimated number of SDA houses required is based on only 6% of disabled people getting SDA payments. This number has already doubled in trial regions and so the number of SDA properties required is expected to be much large.



Last financial year $70 million in SDA funding was spent on the rental payments for SDA Property Investors. The Government’s target is $700 million!



Demand is not static. One very small cohort of Participants are spinal injury patients. Sadly, QLD alone averages more than 100 new cases of severe spinal injury every year.


The NDIS is a Commonwealth Government backed Scheme that includes a special rental payment to encourage investment in SDA Property called a Special Disability Allowance (SDA).



The NDIA is backed by legislation that requires agreement from all States and Territories before any changes are made.

Fast Growth

To encourage investment in SDA Property, the NDIA provides a generous rental subsidy. This scale of this building project can not be over stated and has been slated as the largest social housing building program Australia has ever seen.


Fully Funded

The Government has committed $700m annually for payments to SDA property investors a year, indexed for the next 20 years!

NDISP is your SDA Property Expert!

NDISP is a registered NDIS Provider and holds a Real Estate Agents licence. This means we are held to a very high standard of accountability and transparency with compliance, reporting and trust fund audits from both the NDIS and the REIQ. Additionally, the directors of NDISP have decades of experience in town planning, law and property development. 

What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a Federal Act developed in 2013 to allow people with a disability to exercise choice and control about matters that affect them- such as their housing. SDA housing is housing built to a standard not readily available in the general housing supply. 

The Australian Government was one of the first countries in the world to be a signatory of the ‘UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities’. The Federal Government via the NDIS SDA program have committed $700,000,000.00 annually for the next 20 years to investors who provide specially constructed housing. The SDA housing program aims to increase the supply of suitable accessible housing through generous rental subsidy payments.

Currently, there are over 28,000 Australians with a disability that the NDIS has identified as living in inappropriate accommodation. The NDIS SDA funding is to encourage property investors and institutions to build more disabled centric homes. Sadly there are also 6,000+ young Australian’s who are currently living in aged care facilities due to a lack of housing options and this number is increasing by 50 young Australians a week.

This is where you come in. By purchasing an NDISP Platinum Plus home you help provide a suitable purpose built home for up to 4 disabled Australians.  In return, the generous NDIS SDA scheme will pay you returns that exceed 10.5% net depending on the location and exact property type.


We took the time to ask …

NDISP has been working with disability providers, participants and the general community to find out exactly what type of SDA Property they want in order to achieve the quality of life we all desire. 

We go beyond what is required … 

Livable Housing Australia (LHA) has developed minimum standards of accessible design that have been adopted by the NDIS and the housing industry. The highest build standard is Platinum … NDISP believes this is a minimum standard so all of homes contain features that go beyond what it requires in this standard. We are proud to call this our Platinum Plus standard. What others offer as an option, we include as standard.

We are not a “churn and burn” company … 

NDISP is not a project marketing company pretending to care. After you purchase an NDISP  property, our role has only just begun. NDISP is a registered NDIS Housing Provider and we will continue to manage your investment property. So it is in our interests to ensure that the build quality is high, to keep maintenance issue down and the design is fantastic, to ensure that good tenants will always chose our homes over the competition. 


NDISP Properties Attract the Best Tenants Our unwavering standards in design and build protect your investment.

Accessibility and Independence as a Standard!

All Platinum Plus level builds include approximately $120,000 worth of added build costs over and above a standard build.

All bedrooms are generously oversized to allow for the extra equipment many disabled people need to use a daily basis. Bedrooms in houses also include space for limited food preparation facilities. 

Bathrooms typically exceed the standards set in the LHA Platinum certification.

Emergency call via voice or button activation.

Every bedroom has its own fully accessible bathroom! No sharing required!

On-site Overnight Accommodation

Help when you need it. Privacy when you don’t. 

All NDISP homes have On-site Overnight Accommodation (OOA) that allows for 24hr care services. In our Unit blocks there is a dedicated unit which is only used for OOA. This unit has communication links to all the Units to ensure help is available when needed.  Our houses contain a dedicated private unit within the house.

Providing OOA adds to the build cost but this is offset by the higher SDA payment that houses with OOA attract. It is also essential to have OOA as many participants require this support. 

For Investors

Solar and Battery Backup

A 5kw solar system with a large battery ensure that the participants will never be without essential power, day or night. 

Happy tenants equals low vacancy rates!

NDISP is proud to support the Net Zero Homes movement. If you haven’t heard about Net Zero, it is the concept of a home that generates as much energy as it uses. 

In the short 10min video below Josh Byrne from “Josh’s House” explains what Net Zero is all about. 

Additional Support!

All NDISP properties provide an Additional Support Contribution (ASC) to every resident. In this particular property the ASC is the equivalent of 104 hours of additional care per year provided by the SIL. We are very proud of the fact that we were the first Registered SDA Property Provider to provide this extra layer of support to participants. *

This benefits everyone! Participants and SILs love this feature which in turn means NDISP properties will always be in demand.

* To our knowledge we are still the only Provider doing this.

What else do I need to know?

SDA - Classification

All NDISP homes are registered with the NDIA. There are 4 levels of SDA registration that match to the level of SDA that can be approved in your NDIS Plan.

  • High Physical Support
  • Robust Care
  • Fully Accessible
  • Independent Living

SDA Eligibility

All NDISP properties are registered for SDA with the NDIA. All participants who live in the properties must agree to the following.

They must be 18 years old or over. 

SDA payments are very generous and in return the NDIA requires that they make a Reasonable Rent Contribution. This is set at 25% of your Disability Support Pension plus their Commonwealth Rent Assistance.

Certain homes will require a particular level SDA approved in their plan. 


The SIL for this property will be advised on application. If you are a SIL and require places that would fill the entire property or all units in a complex please contact us. 

I'm curious about the participants experience.

Below is a video that explains how the NDIS pathway works for participants

1. Fill in an Expression of Interest Form

At NDISP we are working very hard to keep up with demand. By entering your EOI Form it helps us ensure we get the right home for you as fast as possible.

4 NDISP will Contact you

When a home that meets your criteria becomes available NDISP or your SIL Provider will contact you with an offer.

2. Talk to your Support Coordinator, LAC or intermediary.

Many people are eligible for SDA payments and are not aware. Just because you haven’t had this in your plan previously doesn’t necessarily mean you are not eligible. We encourage everyone to apply.

5. Agreements

A very simple rental tenacy agreement is all that is required to secure your new lease. NDISP will claim the SDA payments directly from the NDIA and your Reasonable Rental Contribution of 25% of DSS payments directly from CenterLink. 

3. Talk to your friends

If you can share with a friend you already know that is the ideal situation. Always let us know if you are applying with a friend.


6 Move in!!

NDISP will work with you, your informal supports and care providers to ensure your move in smooth and care free. 

After moving in NDISP will continue to support you as the property manager.
