Centrelink JET Child Care Payment
Jobs, Education and Training Child Care Fee Assistance (JETCCFA) provides extra help with the cost of approved child care for eligible parents undertaking activities such as job search, work, study or rehabilitation as part of an Employment Pathway Plan, to help them enter or re-enter the workforce.
JET Child Care can help meet the cost of child care by paying most of the "gap fee" not covered by Child Care Benefit for the hours of care you need to do approved activities.
Discuss anything to do with JET in here!
