A higher rate of Child Care Subsidy (CCS)

Published on 25 February 2022

From 7 March 2022, families with more than one child aged 5 or under in care will get a higher Child Care Subsidy (CCS) for their second child and younger children.
The standard rate child will get the standard CCS rate. This is usually the eldest CCS-eligible child aged 5 or under in the family. Younger children will get a higher subsidy.
Eligible higher rate children will receive a 30% higher subsidy, up to a maximum 95%.
Families may be eligible if they:
• earn less than $354,305
• have more than one child aged 5 or under in child care.
Families already getting CCS don’t need to do anything. Services Australia will automatically increase the CCS for eligible second and younger children.
