Inclusion Support Subsidy
Inclusion Support Subsidy (ISS) is available for families and Educators and is paid to the Scheme to support the inclusion of a child or children with ongoing high support needs. The ISS payment is a contribution towards the costs associated with the impact of caring for a child that requires additional care and attention because of their ongoing high support needs. This means children of all abilities can participate in our Family Day Care setting along with other children including their siblings.
The ISS payment is limited to a flat hourly rate, which is determined by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) and is indexed annually. Children with ongoing high support needs include those with a diagnosed disability, children undergoing continuing assessment for a disability and humanitarian refugee children.
