NDIS rolls out in Queensland

29 September 2015

Townsville, Charters Towers and Palm Island will be the first sites in Queensland to trial the NDIS from early 2016.

This means that about 1,600 north Queenslanders will be able to access the Scheme six months before the rest of the state with 600 of these people expected to be receiving their funded packages from April 2016.

The State Government contributed $1.9 million towards early access of the scheme in north Queensland, with the Commonwealth Government supplying $2.7 million.
