NSW residents will be able to score an extra $50 to spend at restaurants and cafes as the Dine & Discover scheme is extended.
This comes as the state continues to lead the reopening efforts with the 80 per cent double-dose-vaccination target just around the corner.
NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet said the expanded program would support residents across the state and encourage economic activity as part of the government’s economic recovery strategy.
“From Byron to Bega and Bellingen to Broken Hill, this is about supporting people to get out and have a meal or spend the day discovering their city while supporting businesses across NSW,” Perrottet said.
Treasurer Matt Kean said the additional $250 million investment by the NSW government would help businesses recover from months of restrictions and encourage people to enjoy what they love most.
“We experienced the success of the Dine & Discover program when we reopened last time, which is why we are doubling down efforts with an additional two $25 vouchers - one for Dine and one for Discover venues,” Kean said.
“We are backing our businesses and helping hip pockets by expanding the program, in addition to extending existing vouchers until the end of June 2022.”
How to get the extra vouchers
The additional vouchers will again be delivered via the ServiceNSW app, as the previous ones have been.
The government said they should appear in the app in time for summer, but did not give an exact date.
If you don’t see the vouchers in your app, you can contact ServiceNSW and they will send the vouchers to you.
Plus, if you’re a NSW resident who is over 18 but not yet applied, it’s not too late. You can apply now and still receive all six $25 vouchers.
Participating businesses do not need to reapply. Those who want to join the program are encouraged to register, download the scanner app and get ready to redeem.
