Jobs, Education and Training Child Care Fee Assistance

Jobs, Education and Training Child Care Fee Assistance (JETCCFA) provides extra help with the cost of Child Care Benefit approved child care to support parents on income support payments while they undertake work, study or training to enable them to enter or return to the workforce.

The Jobs, Education and Training Child Care Fee Assistance (JETCCFA) will cease on midnight 1 July 2018. It will be replaced by the Transition to Work payment as part of the Additional Child Care Subsidy.

JETCCFA can help meet the cost of child care by paying some of the 'gap fee' - the difference between the total fee charged and the amount covered by Child Care Benefit, for care related to JETCCFA approved activities.
