Capacity Building Supports are designed to help build skills and independence in your daily life, and to help you pursue your goals.
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will assess your needs, and your short and long-term goals during a planning meeting to help identify which Capacity Building Supports might need to be funded. It’s important to know that you will not necessarily be funded for all the Capacity Building Supports categories.
