What is the difference between Short Term and Medium Term Accommodation?
Short Term Accommodation (STA) is a type of NDIS housing designed to give you time away from your caring duties. This might be because you’re taking some time away, or simply because you need to relax and recharge. Funding for Short Term Accommodation (STA) allows eligible NDIS participants to access up to 14 days away from their usual place of residence.
The NDIS usually funds up to 28 days of STA in a year, meaning you’ve got the flexibility to pick and choose when you want to use this type of accommodation. Your options are limitless – use it in a 14-day block, or pick and choose certain weekends of the year instead.
Medium Term Accommodation (MTA) is for anyone who needs a place to stay while waiting for a long-term housing solution. This type of NDIS housing is usually funded for up to 90 days a year.

- you can demonstrate that time away from your current home gives informal supports and/or your carer a break;
- you believe time away from home can help you achieve your goals outlined on your NDIS plan; or
- time away from home can help you meet new friends and try new activities.
