NDIS Medium Term Accommodation (MTA)

What is 'Medium Term Accommodation' under the NDIS?

Medium Term Accommodation will appear in your NDIS plan under CORE Supports.

The NDIS describe Medium Term Accommodation as:


  • A time limited, transitional disability accommodation support designed to meet a participant’s disability related housing needs whilst awaiting disability related supports which will enable them to move into their long term housing solution.  

Medium Term Accommodation:

  • Includes the accommodation component only;

  • Is provided concurrently with the participant’s informal supports and NDIS funded supports, such as assistive technology, assistance with daily life, and community access supports;

  • Is only funded where there is confirmation of a long term housing solution. For example, where a Supported Independent Living (SIL) tenancy has been offered but the property is not yet available or where a participant is awaiting completion of home modifications to their privately owned home or rental property.

Medium Term Accommodation does not include:

  • Everyday living costs.  Participants remain responsible for meeting their day-to-day living costs including groceries, utilities, telephone or internet costs.

How we can support you...

Rural Lifestyle Options Australia can support you with transitional disability accommodation support whilst awaiting supports to enable you to move into a Supported Independent Living arrangement. 


We can support you if you are awaiting disability related supports and: 

  • are exiting hospital, rehabilitation, aged care or custodial settings, where transitional accommodation supports are required prior to their move into a confirmed long term housing solution; or

  • reside in other accommodation arrangements which are not sustainable due to the impact of their disability and where they have confirmation of a long term housing solution. 

Rural Lifestyle Options Australia is committed to providing high quality supports to enable you to live independently in your community of choice. ​Please note that Accommodation of your choosing would be at your cost.
