What is Medium Term Accommodation (MTA)?

Medium Term Accommodation (MTA) can help if you need a place to live while you are waiting for a confirmed long-term housing solution.

For example, you may be waiting for some home modifications to be made before you can move into your new SDA property.

The NDIS usually funds MTA as a one-off support, for stays of up to three months (90 days), or six months (180 days), for those being discharged from hospital.

Medium Term Accommodation (MTA) at Aruma

At Aruma, we offer MTA for those times when your confirmed long-term housing solution isn’t quite ready.

This could be if you are:

  • Waiting home modifications to be done
  • Waiting for assistive technology to arrive
  • Waiting for your confirmed SDA to be available
  • Waiting for a new build SDA to be ready
  • Leaving hospital or aged care
  • Experiencing a breakdown of supports and can’t live in your current home

Get in touch to chat our team about our welcoming MTA properties across New South Wales, Victoria and the ACT.

NDIS Support Categories

MTA is funded under Core Supports in your NDIS plan. To fund this, the NDIS needs evidence that the person has somewhere to move into at the end of the MTA funding.

MTA covers the accommodation costs of where you stay. You’ll still need to pay for other things like your food, phone, internet, and other bills as usual.

Please note: We bill in line with the NDIS Price Guide, which generally increases annually.
