Higher Child Care Subsidy for 2 Children In Care
From Monday the 7th of March 2022, families with more than one child aged 5 or under in care will get a higher Child Care Subsidy (CCS) for their second child and younger children.
The standard rate child will get the standard CCS rate. This is usually the eldest CCS-eligible child aged 5 or under in the family. Younger children will get a higher subsidy.
Eligible higher rate children will receive a 30% higher subsidy, up to a maximum 95%.
Families may be eligible if they:
Earn less than $354,305
Have more than one child aged 5 or under in child care.
Families already getting CCS don’t need to do anything. Services Australia will automatically increase the CCS for eligible second and younger children.
Services Australia has
information for families
on their website, including
examples that show how the higher CCS works
New features are now available on
Families can use the CCS estimator to check how much their child care out of pocket costs might be. Results include the higher subsidy that families will soon get for their second and younger children.
