What is the Child Care Subsidy?
The new child care subsidy will commence on 2 July 2018 and is set to replace the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR) with a single, means-tested subsidy. The Child Care Subsidy will be paid directly to providers to be passed on to families. To find out more information about the new Child Care Subsidy click here.
