What is Child Care Subsidy (CCS)​?

From 2nd July 2018, the Australian Government will introduce a new child care package.The package will replace the current Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR) payments.

Under the new package there will now be one payment made directly to the service called Child Care Subsidy.

The amount of subsidy that families will receive will be based on three things:

1. Their combined family income

2. The l​evel of 'approved' activity they undertake

3. The type of child care servi​ce they use. ​

How much subsidy will I be eligible for?

The Australian Government has released a Family Child Care Subsidy Estimator. We encourage families to click the link below to work out how much subsidy you may be eligible to receive.

It is easy to use and only takes a few minutes to complete.​
