Cheaper child care introduced to Parliament

Today the Australian Government introduced legislation to Parliament to increase the Child Care Subsidy (CCS).

From July 2023, the Government will: 

  • lift the maximum CCS rate to 90% for families earning $80,000 or less  
  • increase CCS rates for around 96% of families with a child currently in care earning under $530,000 
  • keep higher CCS rates for families with two or more children aged 5 years or under in care. 

This measure is subject to the passage of legislation. Read the ministerial media release.
