Oscar Subsidy

We encourage people to see if they would be eligible for the Work and Income Oscar Subsidy. Many don’t realise that they can get government support for holiday programme and after school care, if they just jump through a few bits of paperwork. If you have 3 or more children, you need to be earning more than $1,800 per week to not be eligible for support. If you have 2 children, you need to be earning more than $1,600 per week and if just 1 child, $1,400 per week (gross).  CLICK HERE for the full list of rates.
