*What are CCB subsidies?
Child Care Benefit (CCB) is a payment from the Australian Government that helps you with the cost of child care.
The CCB is income tested and is usually paid directly to Child Care Services to reduce the fees that eligible families pay.
You can apply for the CCB online or in person through Centrelink. To apply online, visit the Department of Human Services website.
