Child Care Subsidy and Additional Child Care Subsidy

On 2 July 2018 the Child Care Subsidy and Additional Child Care Subsidy will replace the current child care fee assistance payments. Child Care Subsidy will be paid directly to your approved child care provider/s to reduce the fees you pay.

In April 2018 all families currently in receipt of Child Care Benefit and/or Rebate for approved care will receive a Centrelink letter about transitioning to the Child Care Subsidy.

You should follow the instructions in your letter and go online to complete your Child Care Subsidy assessment or claim for Child Care Subsidy as soon as possible.
