NDIS In-kind Supports

What is happening to the Commission’s funded services?

In-kind arrangements are interim funding arrangements, which were put in place when the NDIS started rolling out across Australia. Under these arrangements, providers of some disability support programs continue to be paid in advance by state/territory and/or Commonwealth governments to deliver these services. When used by NDIS participants, these pre-paid supports are called ‘in-kind’.

Current Commission funded in-kind supports are:

  • Staffed Residential Services (Long-Term Supports)
  • Staffed Residential Services (Community Options)

The Commission is continuing to fund these programs until people have had the opportunity to transition these supports into the NDIS and there is agreement for the Commonwealth to provide individualised funding within their NDIS plan.

The Commission will work with the relevant service providers and government agencies to help make the transition as smooth as possible. People who are not eligible for the NDIS will continue to be supported.
