NDIS / SDA CATEGORY ROBUST
General Information SDA - ROBUST (Silver Level LHA)
Robust Design Overview
The Robust construction is one of the five categories of housing that is funded by the NDIA – fully accessible housing that also has improve- ments that reduce risks to participants with complex behaviours. The robust design makes use of resilient materials that can withstand heavy use and minimises the risk to participants and assists in reducing neighbourhood disturbances.
All floor plan layouts and inclusions within the construction have been designed to incorporate materials of a high standard ensuring the appearance mirrors that of standard residential housing. The building designers ensure plans conform with all specifications required under the Liveable Housing Standards for Silver Level accommodations, in addition to the NDIS requirements. Special design considerations has been given to needs of both care providers and tenants while ensuring the functions of built in items included also serve that of a standard home. All finishes within the property have been selected with aesthetics given priority to attract both potential tenants and potential future buyers.
All homes registered as specialist disability accommodation under the NDIS go through all standard development applications, in addition to the LHA inspection and report, and are designed to comply with local and state government town planning and design requirements.
The NDIS Housing Rates
The NDIA is making payments to all housing that is occupied by participants that have SDA approved in their plans for the same scope of accommodation; this includes both housing that existed prior to the NDIS in addition to the new housing constructed in response to the NDIS housing initiative. The price paid by the NDIA will be higher for “New builds” to attract new investors to enter the market to assist in constructing purpose built housing.
Housing is based on a 20 year NDIS life, after which time it is assumed that the housing will be sold in the private market. At this time, the payment schedule will change from that of a “new build” to “existing stock”.
All properties and all providers are required to be registered through the NDIA and NDIS. The NDIA will capture data on the housing stock that is being funded. The position paper does not set out additional hurdles to register for housing beyond the requirements for all providers. These include that the provider agrees with the NDIA’s terms and conditions, and terms of business, that the dwelling meets relevant State and Commonwealth standards and laws, and is charging a rate consistent with the benchmark pricing.
Providers will also need to register the dwelling with the NDIA. This will provide a database of housing that is current, and includes infor- mation on current, tenanted and new housing that is available for NDIS participants. In registering dwellings, providers will need to attest that the dwelling meets the standard that it is being registered for, (eg. Fully accessible / platinum / robust / silver). As part of compliance a licenced LHA assessor will be employed to complete an inspection and report on completion of the build to accompany the enrolment of the dwelling.
