Rural GP Childcare Grant

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

The Rural GP/RG Childcare Grant provides up to $1,000 in a financial year for each pre-school child in paid child care. You can apply for the subsidy in June and December each year.

The Rural GP/RG Childcare Grant supports primary carers to remain in the rural GP/RG workforce, and you can apply for the grant even if you receive other financial subsidies for child care costs.


You can apply for the Rural GP/RG Childcare Grant if you are a GP/RG or GP registrar working in a rural South Australian community and are the primary carer of one or more children who have not yet started school. You can be eligible for part of a financial year.

You can check your location is in MM 2-7 in South Australia using the Health Workforce Locator on-line tool.

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


Applications are now open.
