Families in Western Australia with children in school are eligible to receive a cost-of-living payment for each child! 

A cost-of-living payment of $150 for primary-aged and kindergarten school students, and $250 for secondary school students will be available to parents and carers from 15 April, with applications closing 28 June 2024.

This is part of a $103.5 million package to reduce pressure of school expenses for parents as part of the 2024-25 State Budget.
