					EYLF PLP Travel Subsidy

Participants travelling significant distances to attend the EYLF PLP Workshops may be eligible for travel and
accommodation subsidy. To apply please fill in this form and send it to the ECA office at least 3 weeks before
the workshop date for special consideration. The form can also be found on pages 3 and 4 of this document.
Please refer to the criteria below to see if you are eligible and the amount you can claim.

The travel and accommodation subsidy criteria:

    Subsidy is a contribution to the total costs, not reimbursement of total costs.
    The subsidy is available for the services which are not receiving subsidy from other organisations
    funded by the Department of Education, Employments and Workplace Relations to deliver
    professional support.
    Subsidy is based on the closest Workshop to your service location and will be paid on this basis
    regardless of whether you attend a Workshop at another location. To find the closest Workshop
    location please uses the Workshop Finder.
    Applications for subsidy must be made at Registration stage, prior to Workshop attendance.
    Distance from Workshops is calculated as a direct radius in kilometres from the service address to
    the Workshop and is calculated from the physical address of the service to the Workshop location
    (as the crow flies).
    Exceptions may be made if evidence is provided that the distance travelled is significantly greater
    than the direct distance to the Workshops (as the crow flies). Please contact us on 02 6242 1800 for
    special consideration.
    Travel (car) will be paid at a variable rate based on distance from service. Rates will be paid as
    follows:

                   airfare
        The travel (car) subsidy is allocated per service regardless of the number of participants from
        the service attending the Workshops.
        The travel (plane) subsidy is capped at two people per service.
        The travel (plane) subsidy will be reimbursed at 80% of the cost of the airfare, on presentation
        of the airline tax invoice and itinerary and evidence of attendance at Workshop.
        The travel (plane) subsidy is based on cheapest available flight three weeks in advance of
        Workshop date.
        If participants travelling by plane are required to drive a distance greater than 200km to get to
        the airport, they will also receive the corresponding petrol subsidy.
        The accommodation subsidy consists of a base amount plus an amount for each additional
        participant. This additional subsidy is limited to two additional people.
        Participants are required to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements.
        The travel subsidy will be paid post-Workshop participation, directly into the service bank
        account provided during registration. The bank account provided must be that of the service,
        not an individual.
