In response to COVID-19, child care is free. This means Centrelink is not currently paying Child Care Subsidy (CCS).
If you were getting CCS before 6 April 2020, you won’t need to do anything for it to start again when the free child care period ends.
If you recently started using child care, you should find out about CCS.
What is CCS?
CCS helps with the cost of approved child care. Centrelink pays this subsidy directly to your child care provider to reduce the fees you pay.
