Switch now to new sub­si­dies

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

FAM­I­LIES are be­ing urged to make the switch to the Fed­eral Govern­ment’s new child care and early learn­ing sys­tem or risk miss­ing out on the new sub­si­dies.

Fed­eral Le­ich­hardt MP War­ren Entsch said new data showed around 74 per cent of FNQ fam­i­lies have al­ready made the switch. “Far North Queens­land fam­i­lies who haven’t made the switch need to do so by July 2, or they could miss out on re­ceiv­ing the new child care sub­sidy,” he said.

“Many fam­i­lies in Cairns and Far North Queens­land will be hun­dreds if not thou­sands of dol­lars a year bet­ter off un­der our re­forms but they need to make the switch to the new sys­tem. They should visit www.ed­u­ca­tion.gov.au/child­care as soon as they can.”

Up­dates can be made eas­ily at any point through your Cen­tre­link on­line ac­count via myGov.
