Cloth Nappy Subsidy 

The Shire has introduced a program to help parents choose cloth over disposable nappies. The Shire will subsidise the cost of up to $100* towards the cost of cloth nappies for families who would like to give real nappies a go! 

Disposable nappies are not only a more expensive option over time, but they have a significant environmental impact as they do not easily breakdown in landfills.  

Claim your subsidy in 3 easy steps:
1. Purchase your cloth nappies and keep receipts
2. Complete a Cloth Nappy Subsidy Application Form and return with your receipt
3. Enjoy some extra cash in your bank!

*Only one subsidy per household, receipt must be for purchase less than 6 months from the date of application.
