Dwelling enrolment

There are 2 options to enrol an SDA dwelling. A provider can enrol a dwelling against the SDA design standard or the minimum requirements .  

All SDA dwellings must be enrolled with the NDIA through the ‘my NDIS provider portal’. The portal allows providers to:

  • create and submit new dwelling enrolment applications
  • enrol a dwelling with multiple rooms of different design categories
  • update existing enrolments, where applicable
  • action requests for additional information 
  • view enrolled dwellings. 

To register for access to the new portal, the SDA provider’s PRODA account manager must email [email protected] with the following information:  

  • organisation name
  • full name of authorised organisational contact
  • date of birth of authorised organisational contact
  • email of authorised organisational contact
  • PRODA registration authority (RA) number of authorised organisational contact.
  • to locate your RA number:
    • log in to PRODA
    • click on ‘Profile’
    • your RA number is located at the bottom of ‘My Details’.

Providers will receive an email notification confirming their registration. Once registration is confirmed, follow the prompts to log in to the my NDIS provider portal . You can also download the my NDIS provider portal guide to learn about enrolling dwellings, and managing the end-to-end SDA application process.

SDA vacancies

Providers must notify the NDIA within 5 business days of a vacancy arising in an SDA dwelling. This is a condition of enrolment under section 29(1)(f) of the SDA Rules.

To inform the NDIA of a vacancy, providers need to complete the online form . Providers will be asked to opt in or out of publishing their SDA vacancy on the SDA Finder.

The SDA Finder:

  • helps participants find suitable SDA vacancies across Australia.
  • allows providers to list SDA vacancies on the NDIS website.
  • helps providers to comply with the SDA Rules

Your vacancy information needs to match your SDA dwelling enrolment to be accepted in our system and published (or removed) on the SDA Finder.
