$250 vouchers for NSW families as economic recovery strategy unveiled
NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet and Treasurer Matt Kean have released their strategy for economic recovery following the Delta COVID-19 outbreak.
The plan has four pillars to secure a strong rebound, the Treasurer explained:
- Rebuilding consumer confidence, with measures such as the dine and discover vouchers.
- Rebuilding business confidence, with measures such as the stock guarantee.
- Focusing on hardest hit sectors, including the arts, entertainment and hospitality with targeted spending.
- Funding assistance for the most vulnerable, including a $300 million intensive learning program for young people, mental health investment, and a $500 million package for domestic and family violence survivors.
“These are the investments that will make our state great,” Mr Perrottet said.
The Premier also announced a further spending voucher available to NSW households with school-aged children.
Families will receive one $250 voucher each, to be used for holiday accommodation and ‘discover’ venues and activities.
“This is a big thank you to every single mum and dad across the state.
“We all … owe you a great deal of gratitude.”
The scheme is budgeted at $193 million.
2GB reporter Clinton Maynard has confirmed further details of the scheme, which is budgeted at $193 million.
“A little bit controversial this one, Jim; not [available] until next March.”
