Financial Assistance

What is the Child Care Subsidy (CCS)?

From 2 July 2018, there will be a new child care package. The package includes a new Child Care Subsidy, which replaces the old child care benefit and rebate. It will be paid directly to services, and will make child care more affordable for most families.

How does it work?

Three things will determine a family level of CCS:

1. Combined Family Income

2. Activity Level of Parents

3. Type of Child Care Service
