In May 2015 the Federal Government released a comprehensive Child Care Assistance Package as part of the 2015/16 Federal Budget.
The Federal Department of Social Services has now released a Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) on the Child Care Assistance Package. The RIS sets out the options that were considered in the development of the package and describes implementation options to the key components of the package. You can access a copy of the RIS here. It should be noted that this RIS does not cover the Interim Home Based Carer Subsidy Programme (Nanny Trial), as this is subject to a separate consultation process.
Consultation sessions commence in Canberra Thursday 2 July 2015 and conclude in Cairns 31 July 2015. Click here for dates and locations, and to register to attend a session. For advice on providing feedback click here.
