Out of School Care and Recreation (OSCAR) Subsidy is a payment which helps families with the costs of after-school care and school holiday programmes. It helps with the costs for up to 20 hours a week, and school holiday programmes of up to 50 hours a week.
In order to receive your OSCAR subsidy from the day your child starts the programme, you need to submit your application to WINZ before your child’s first day. This is especially important at School Holidays.
