Helping families understand CCS changes
Updated: Mar 10
From July 2023 most families using child care will get more 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 1% for each $5,000 earned.
Families with more than one child aged 5 or under in care can still get a higher rate for their second and younger children.
