NDIS Roll out dates released

The Australian Government signed agreements with the NSW and Victorian governments for the full roll out of the NDIS across the two states.

Existing service users and new participants will enter the scheme progressively. People currently receiving support through the Victorian Government will move to the NDIS at different times depending on where they live and the type of support they receive.

It is expected to take up to 12 months for eligible people with disability to enter the NDIS once roll out starts in an area. Existing Commonwealth and state-based services and supports will con-tinue until eligible people start their plans with the NDIS.

The NDIS will become available in the Inner Gippsland area from 1 October 2017. The Inner Gippsland area covers the local government areas of:

  • Bass Coast
  • Baw Baw
  • Latrobe
  • South Gippsland 

The NDIS will become available in the Outer Gippsland area from 1 January 2019. The Outer Gippsland area covers the local government areas of:

  • East Gippsland
  • Wellington
