Grandparent Subsidy amount
You’ll be able to access 100 hours of subsidised care each fortnight for your grandchild.
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.
There’s no time limit on how long you can get this additional subsidy as long as you stay eligible.
