Supported Accommodation Innovation Fund (SAIF)

Eligible organisations, can now apply for a capital grant to build innovative supported accommodation for people with disability through the Supported Accommodation Innovation Fund (SAIF). Applications for SAIF opened on 5 September 2011 and will remain open until 20 January 2012.

This $60 million Australian Government initiative, spanning three years, will help build innovative, community-based supported accommodation places for people with disability.

This funding presents an opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of up to 150 people with disability, their families and carers. Projects could include renovations to existing homes, pooled resources to build contemporary accommodation services close to community and health services or the modification of existing accommodation within the community.

For information about SAIF, including how to apply, please see the SAIF website. Application documents are available on the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) website.

Completed applications are to be submitted to by 2pm, 20 January 2012.
