[Excerpt] The Commonwealth State Territory Disability Agreement (CSTDA) provides the national framework for the provision of government services for people with a disability. To date, there have been three Agreements, and under each of these, the Australian Government has been responsible for specialist disability employment services. State and territory governments are responsible for accommodation support, community support, community access, and respite services. Responsibility for advocacy, information, and print disability services is shared between jurisdictions.
