SADI's program funding comes from appropriations made available through the estimates process, and an authority to access repayments collected from SADI and the program that preceded it, Technology Partnerships Canada (TPC). In addition, in 2009, $200 million over four years (2010–11 to 2013–14) was announced for SADI.

As of March 31, 2012, SADI approved $824.8 million in authorized assistance of which $386.6 million was disbursed against eligible claims. Budget for SADI for 2012–2013 is $296.3 million.

SADI annual disbursements continue to grow while operational costs decline as the program reaches steady state. ITO's operating expense was $7.8 million in 2011–12 for the management of SADI and TPC. Operating expenses cover salaries, audits, site visits, employee training, outreach and other administrative program requirements.
