Government Childcare Subsidy
CCS Entitlement Level
There are three things that will determine your level of subsidy:
- Your combined family income
- The activity level of your family – recognised activities that enable a family to claim (eg paid work, volunteering, studying, self-employed work, actively job seeking)
- The type of childcare your child or children are enrolled in –this is a Long Day Care service.
You can use the Payment and Services Finder to estimate how much CCS you may get.
