Child Wellbeing subsidy amount

You’ll be able to access 100 hours of subsidised care each fortnight for the child.

We’ll pay the lower of either:

  • 100% of the fee charged where it’s equal to or below the hourly rate cap
  • up to 120% of the hourly rate cap where the fee charged is above the hourly rate cap.

If eligible, you will get this subsidy for up to 6 weeks. After this initial 6 weeks, your child care service may think you need to keep getting this additional subsidy. If this is the case, they can apply for longer periods of up to 13 weeks.
