Rural GP Child Care Grant

About the Grant

Are you a rural GP or GP registrar with young children?

The Rural GP Child Care Grant can help offset or subsidise the cost of child care to enable you to continue your valuable general practice work with your community.

The Rural GP Child Care Grant provides up to $1,000 to contribute to the cost of childcare for pre-school aged children.


You can apply for the Rural GP Child Care Grant if you are a GP or GP registrar living and working in a rural South Australian community and are the primary carer of one or more pre-school aged children.

At least one of your children will need to be enrolled in paid child care to enable you to work in your community, and be less than five years old at April 2022.

A rural community is a location that is listed as MM 2-7 within the Modified Monash Model (MM). You can check if your home address is in MM 2-7 by using the on-line tool here: Modified Monash Model.

For more information on eligibility please refer to the Applicant Guidelines.

Important Information

The grant is paid as $250 for each eligible quarter in the 2021-22 financial year.

The grant is not dependant on the number of children in child care.

More information about the grant can be found in the Applicant Guidelines.
