NSW residents will be given $100 worth of digital vouchers that can be used at eateries and on arts and tourism attractions across NSW as part of a flagship $500 million program to help business, stimulate the state’s economy and support local jobs.

Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said the $500 million Out and About program was designed to boost businesses hit hard by the pandemic, by encouraging people to get out and enjoy the best of NSW.

Every NSW resident aged 18 and over will be eligible for four $25 vouchers worth $100 in total – with the program designed to encourage people to spend multiple times to support their local businesses.

Two vouchers can be used for eating in at venues such as restaurants, cafes, clubs and other food service venues, and two vouchers can be used for entertainment and recreation, such as cultural institutions, performing arts, cinemas, and amusement parks. Service

NSW will operate a pilot of the scheme throughout December in the Sydney CBD.

Vouchers will not be redeemable for tobacco, alcohol or gambling.
