Customers will have more reasons to celebrate catching up with friends and family this summer with two additional Dine & Discover vouchers available for NSW residents.
Member for Oatley, Mark Coure, said that this additional investment in local businesses would turbocharge the NSW economy whilst providing tangible benefits for local residents and their families.
“As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, our Government wants to ensure that we do not just recover, but bounce back even stronger,” Mr Coure said.
“Small businesses are the engine room of our economy and we are committed to putting the stimulus and support measures in place to ensure that they thrive into the future.”
Premier, Dominic Perrottet, said the expanded program will 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,” Premier 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,” Treasurer 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.”
Minister for Digital and Customer Service, Victor Dominello, said the vouchers would again be delivered via the ServiceNSW app.
“You will find them in your ServiceNSW app in time for summer or you can contact Service NSW and they can send them to you,” Minister Dominello said.
“To date, almost 4.8 million people have taken advantage of the voucher program since its launch in March, giving businesses a $430 million boost.”
