Two additional Dine and Discover vouchers for residents

Two additional Dine and Discover vouchers will be available for NSW residents this summer.

Premier Dominic Perrottet said the expanded program will encourage economic activity and would help businesses recover from months of restrictions and encourage.

Residents will be able to access an additional two $25 vouchers - one for Dine and one for Discover venues. NSW residents aged 18 years and over who are yet to apply will be able to do so until the program ends and will receive all six $25 vouchers.

Almost 4.8 million people have taken advantage of the voucher program since it launched in March.

"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," Mr Perrottet said.

"You'll find them in your ServiceNSW app in time for Summer or you can contact ServiceNSW and they can send them to you."

Treasurer Matt Kean: "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."

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.

Meanwhile, the state government has also announced hospitality businesses can apply for $5000 grants to establish new alfresco settings.

"After a long winter, it's time for Sydney to enjoy a meal or drink in the sunshine and the NSW Government is committed to helping businesses do that in time for summer," Digital and Customer Service Minister Victor Dominello said.

"We're providing 5000 hospitality businesses a $5,000 grant to get their outdoor dining venture off the ground - whether that's to help set-up curb-side dining or a pub-style courtyard, we're here to turn their ideas into reality."
