From July 2023, most families using childcare will get more Child Care Subsidy (CCS). Here’s what you need to know:
- The maximum amount of CCS is increasing from 85% to 90%.
- Families earning $80,000 or less will get 90% subsidy.
- Families earning over $80,000 and under $530,000 will get a subsidy that tapers down from 90%, depending on their income. The subsidy will go down by 1% for each $5,000 earned.
- Families with more than one child aged 5 or under can still get a higher rate for their second and younger children.
More information and resources will be available over the coming weeks and months.
