Has Your Family Been Affected by COVID-19?

If you get the Child Care Subsidy and are doing less work, study or other recognised activity because of coronavirus you may be eligible for more subsidised care.
 
To be eligible, you or your partner need to have been doing more than 16 hours of recognised activity each fortnight between January and March this year, and you now need to be doing at least 8 hours. You also need to have moved down a Child Care Subsidy activity level.
 
If this is you, you may be able to get up to 100 hours of Child Care Subsidy each fortnight.
 
If you’re eligible, you’ll be able to access the extra hours for up to 12 weeks between 13 July and 4 October 2020.
 
You can apply in your Centrelink online account through myGov and Express Plus Centrelink mobile app.
