The Victorian Government will invest over $300 million for disability services for people in the Barwon area over the launch period. This includes $290 million of existing funding. The Commonwealth Government will invest more than $190 million towards individually funded packages in the Barwon area. In addition, the Victorian Government has allocated $900,000 in the 2012-13 State Budget to prepare for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

The Commonwealth Budget committed $1 billion over four years to launch the NDIS in five launch site areas across Australia. It included funding to establish the NDIS Launch Transition Agency, IT systems, research and evaluation.

LISA Comment: Please feel free to comment on these figures!

We see the this NDIS launch as little more than, more of the same old super despotic controlled DHS ISPs. A few crumbes for those who have nothing, but must be eternally grateful. Rather than real needs/entitlement packages... Like, what about those with highsupport needs who have been for ever on the DSR (waiting list) for a group home.
