The package includes a new Child Care Subsidy, which replaces the current Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate. It will be paid directly to services to reduce the out-of-pocket cost for most families.
Families earning less than $185,710^ will no longer be subject to a cap on the amount of subsidy they can access.
The subsidy for families earning between $185,710^ and $350,000^, will be capped at $10,000^ per year, per child.
