What are Capital Supports funding?

Your CAPITAL SUPPORTS funding is to use towards higher-cost, one-off purchases of assistive technology, equipment and home or vehicle modifications.

This is the least flexible budget as the funding must be used as identified in the plan.

What if I do not have funding for this support?

If your plan has not included funding for these supports, and you feel this is reasonable & necessary for your disability needs, you will need to get in touch with your NDIA planner or LAC directly, or call NDIA on 1800 800 110 to discuss a plan review or your options for funding.
