Am I eligible for the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) and/or Child Care Benefit?

The Child Care Subsidy (CCS) helps eligible families access approved and registered child care providers, by partially subsidising the cost of daily fees. CCS is provided by the Federal Government and is managed through their Services Australia agency.

 

Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is the payment made by Government to assist families with the costs of childcare. It is paid directly to the service and passed on to families as a fee reduction.

 

How does the Child Care Subsidy work?

 

The Child Care Subsidy will be paid directly to providers to be passed on to families as a fee reduction. Families will make a co-contribution to their child care fees and pay to the provider the difference between the fee charged and the subsidised amount

 

Who can get it?

 

To be eligible for the CCS you must meet certain requirements, some of which are: Be a Family Tax Benefit Child or Regular Care Child. Be 13 years of age or under, and not attending secondary school. Meet immunisation requirements.

 

You need to meet some requirements to get Child Care Subsidy.

 

We pay this subsidy directly to your childcare provider to reduce the fees you pay.
