Community Child Care Fund Round 2

The Australian Government is inviting applications from eligible child care services in an open competitive process to apply to deliver services under the Community Child Care Fund from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2021.

The CCCF is part of the Australian Government’s Child Care Safety Net, which contributes to giving the most vulnerable children a strong start in life while supporting parents into work.

Applications close on the 5th April 2019 at 11:00pm AEST.

Grants provided under the CCCF are intended to supplement fee income received from families, including Child Care Subsidy and Additional Child Care Subsidy payments.

The intended outcomes of the CCCF are to:

  • improve early childhood development outcomes for vulnerable and disadvantaged children.
  • increase workforce participation by vulnerable and disadvantaged families.More information
