The Victorian government has allocated $35.5 million in funding to assist disability accommodation across the state.
Over the next four years, nine community service providers will receive funding for operational costs, as well as $12.8 million in capital to develop new accommodation options.
According to state minister for community services Mary Wooldridge, the money will allow the sustainable development of innovative housing for people with a disability.
"The choice of projects reflects the insights gained through consultation with the community and aims to create better lives for people with a disability by supporting them to live independently," she said (June 22).
"Innovations include improved support for people with complex needs, the creation of more positive living environments, and specialised support to provide residents with opportunities to develop their independent living skills and enjoy greater community participation."
Some of the larger projects include build seven one-bedroom units, a communal activity area and staff facilities across three separate sites to be built by recovery support organisation Ermha, as well as three blocks of self-contained units to be provided in Bendigo by St Luke’s Anglicare.
