From 2 July 2018, there will be a New Child Care Package.The Package will help parents with children aged 0 to 13 work, train, study and volunteer. The Package includes a new Child Care Subsidy, which replaces Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate. It will be paid directly to services.
Annual subsidy cap
Families earning $186,958 or less will have no cap on the amount of Child Care Subsidy they can claim. Families earning over $186,958 and under $351,248 will benefit from an increase in the current cap of $7,613 to $10,190 per child, per year.
Three things will determine a family's level of Child Care Subsidy:
1. Combined family income
2. Activity level of parents
3. Type of child care service
