The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and Home and Community Care Package for Young People (HACC PYP) are separate funding options available to you. If you currently receive an NDIS Plan, you may still qualify to access HACC PYP funding for clinical support (as long as you are not already receiving this through your NDIS Plan).
