The Supported Living Fund (SLF) is a new type of accommodation support funding for people with a disability aged 18 to 64 years averaging $50,000 per person per annum. It enables people with a disability, along with their family and carers to create living arrangements that suit the person’s life and preferences, gives access to paid supports and services, and to plan for their future. The funding is portable, remains with the individual and is administered by a service provider of the person’s choice.
Applying for the Supported Living Fund
The third and final application round for SLF packages will be open between Monday 24 June and Friday 30 August 2013.
As with all previous rounds, the SLF Proposal (My Proposal) is the only official application form for Round 3. Regional SLF Assessment Panels will use the information contained in Proposal Forms to assess and prioritise all SLF applicants. No other correspondence or supporting documentation will be taken into account and should not be submitted.
ADHC will be accepting applications from new applicants and people who were unsuccessful in their application for the Supported Living Fund in Round 1 and 2.
Electronic and printed versions of the My Proposal form can be accessed from the ADHC website at http://www.adhc.nsw.gov.au/individuals/support/somewhere_to_live
Applicants are encouraged to read all the SLF information which is available on the ADHC website at the link above. This will help them decide if the SLF is right for them and if they are interested in applying for SLF funding.
Should applicants have questions about completing the Proposal Form, they can contact Carers NSW on 1800 242 636 during the application period.
Closing date – Friday 30 August 2013
