Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) Charging Measures
In line with the Australian Government Charging Framework, the Government introduced two HELP Charging Measures in the 2019–20 Federal Budget. These allow for higher education providers who use Commonwealth funding to contribute to the maintenance and operation of HELP arrangements.
Regular updates provide important information to higher education providers on recent HELP policy changes, current policy interpretations and reminders to support best practice in the sector. These updates are additional to the support provided by the Administrative Information for Providers (AIP) and are a product of current interactions between providers and the department.
