Line Item Description

These are supports needed in the event of unforeseen situations and emergencies. Support Independent Living does not include rent, board and lodging or other dayto-day usual living expenses such as food and activities. It also does not include the capital costs associated with a participant’s accommodation.

Irregular supported independent living supports are intermittent or unplanned events that disrupt supports initially planned for in the supported independent living plan budget.

Examples of situations where irregular supported independent living supports would be required include a participant falling ill or the cancellation of a day program, so that participants are in their home and require supported independent living supports for a period that was not initially planned and rostered for.

Claims for irregular supported independent living supports are made using the relevant support item, using the “Irregular SIL Support” claim type when claiming.
This is process is the same for ‘Assistance in Supported Independent Living - Weekly’ line item when providers are claiming weekly.

Usually this line item cannot be used to claim the funds. The budget can be shifted to Core Daily Living.
