SDA Finance

New financing models have been created around the SDA payments system. Whether you’re looking into one of these or leveraging a more traditional financing option for your investment in SDA, these resources may help:

Financing SDA
SDA is designed to operate similar to all other NDIS supports, that is, SDA providers will secure tenure over suitable housing either by developing and building themselves or via partnerships with investors, developers and builders and the SDA provider will offer housing to NDIS participants who are eligible to receive SDA payments as part of their NDIS plans.

Investors may contribute finance to the SDA market via a number of different approaches as outlined in this guide.
