Independent Member for Indi, Cathy McGowan AO, congratulated Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews on signing the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) agreement to cover Victorians.
“I welcome the Government signing this historic agreement with the Victorian Government,” Ms McGowan said.
“This decision will also be welcomed by people who lobbied Government for this important commitment.
“This will benefit many people with a disability, their families and carers right across Indi. The NDIS will provide vital support for families who have waited for this to be implemented. I look forward to working with the Victorian Government on the rollout and implementation of the NDIS across Indi.”
Ms McGowan said the rollout would begin in local government areas, including Wangarattta, Wodonga, Towong, Alpine, Indigo, Benalla and Mansfield from October 2017, and in Murrindindi from January 2019.
