FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

The differences between STA and MTA are:

  • Length of stay: STA is for up to 28 days, MTA for up to 90 days. You can choose to take all your allocated funding days in one stay or break them up over multiple stays, the choice is yours
  • Reason for stay: STA is more flexible for various reasons, including respite and trying new living arrangements. MTA is primarily for temporary relocation while permanent housing is being prepared. For instance, if you have been discharged from hospital and your permanent residency needs modifications made before you can return home
  • Type of accommodation: Both cover similar settings, but MTA may also include rental properties and supported living environments

Your NDIS plan will specify if you have been approved for STA or MTA. You do not need to be approved for STA if you have MTA approval and vice versa. You only need approval for the type of accommodation you want to access.

Medium Term Accommodation (MTA):

While MTA offers flexibility, stays are typically capped at 90 days. This is because it’s designed as a temporary housing solution while you await a more permanent living arrangement. However, if you have unforeseen circumstances that require a longer stay, you can request an extension from the NDIS. Be prepared to provide documentation explaining the reason for the extension and any potential impact on your transition to your permanent housing.

Short Term Accommodation (STA):

STA offers a shorter stay window, typically 28 days. This is ideal for situations like temporary breaks from your usual living environment or short-term support needs. The good news is you have flexibility within that timeframe. You can use all your allocated days at once for a longer stay or spread them out across multiple visits, depending on your needs.

One-bedroom apartments: These provide a private space with a bedroom, ensuite bathroom, and kitchenette for a more independent living experience.

Studio apartments: Our studios offer a cozy and functional living space with a combined bedroom and living area, along with a private bathroom and kitchenette.

For personal care needs, due to insurance requirements, you’ll be supported by our qualified Myxa disability support workers. This ensures we can deliver the highest standard of care and meet all necessary safety protocols.
However, for other support services such as community access or assistance with household tasks, you have more flexibility. You’re welcome to choose a disability support worker you’re familiar with, as long as they are registered and qualified to provide the specific services you require.
