Eligible businesses on the Central Coast are being encouraged to register for the NSW Government’s Dine & Discover NSW voucher program, to help boost dining, arts and tourism industries in the area.
Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello said registering is simple and easy and can be done online.
“Whether it’s a café, restaurant, wildlife park or museum, this program will be a game changer for local economies and will give businesses a much needed boost after the busy summer period,” Mr Dominello said.
“The past 12 months have been incredibly tough for businesses, and we want this voucher program to not just keep the doors open, but to help businesses grow.
“Central Coast businesses can register online now and for those who have questions about how the program works, there is a dedicated team of Service NSW Business Concierges who can assist with the registration process and tips on how to redeem vouchers.”
Once registered, businesses will be able to track the progress of the application through their MyServiceNSW Business Profile.
Every NSW resident aged 18 and over will be eligible for four $25 vouchers worth $100 in total, to spend in participating businesses.
Following a brief pilot in February and the state-wide roll out from March, Dine & Discover NSW will run until 30 June 2021.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Adam Crouch urged customers to download the Service NSW app now in advance of the state wide rollout.
“After the triple whammy of fires, flooding and COVID-19 this stimulus is exactly what our community needs to boost business and get people out and about in a COVID-safe way,” Mr Crouch said.
“I encourage everyone to do themselves a favour – download the Service NSW app now so you’re ready to reap the rewards when the Dine & Discover NSW voucher program goes live. Downloading the app only takes a few minutes and can also be used to download a Digital Driver Licence and renewing registrations.
“Eligible locals will be sent an email from Service NSW with details on how to apply for Dine & Discover vouchers online.”
More than 70 Central Coast businesses have already registered for Dine & Discover NSW.
A non-digital solution will be made available to customers who don’t have a smartphone or compatible device.
