About one million families can now enjoy $250 worth of vouchers, thanks to the State Government’s Parents NSW program which went live on Monday 7th February 2022.
Eligible families will receive five $50 vouchers which can be redeemed at Discover NSW and Stay NSW registered businesses.
Premier Dominic Perrottet said this program was a big win for households and would help ease the cost of living for busy parents.
“This is all about thanking parents for their home schooling efforts last year, helping make ends meet and supporting local businesses. Parents have persevered and balanced a variety of challenges as a result of home learning, and we are grateful for their hard work and sacrifices,” Mr Perrottet said.
“This will also put downward pressure on the cost of living by helping families across the State get out and enjoy the best our State has to offer while leaving them with more money in their back pocket to spend on the everyday essentials.”
In addition, the Stay NSW voucher program, providing every adult aged 18 and older with a $50 voucher to spend at registered accommodation providers, will be progressively rolled out from 21st February 2022.
Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government Victor Dominello said households would be able to apply for both programs via Service NSW.
“Applying is easy and can be done quickly via your Service NSW app, the Service NSW website or by calling 13 77 88 for assistance, it then only takes a few seconds to scan the vouchers and reap the rewards.” Mr Dominello said.
