Child care subsidy

In July 2018 the new Child Care Subsidy was introduced to bring increased support to more families across Australia. You may be eligible for Child Care Subsidy if:

  • you or your partner are the primary carer or have legal responsibility for your child

  • you or your partner are liable for paying childcare fees

  • you or your partner meet the residency requirements

  • your child is 13 years of age or under and does not attend secondary school (or has an exemption)

  • your child meets the immunisation requirements.

The amount of Child Care Subsidy you will be entitled to is based on:

  • How much ‘recognised’ activity you and your partner undertake each fortnight. The entitlement is based on the lesser activity figure for a member of a couple.

  • What your combined family income is.

  • The childcare fees you pay (hourly rate caps apply for each service type).
