Local customers will have more reasons to celebrate catching up with friends and family this summer with two additional Dine & Discover vouchers up for grabs for NSW residents.
The expanded program will support residents across the community and encourage economic activity as part of the government's economic recovery strategy.
This is about supporting people to get out and have a meal or spend the day discovering their community while supporting businesses.
The additional $250 million investment by the NSW Government will help businesses recover from months of restrictions and encourage people to enjoy what they love most.
More information will be made available in the coming weeks on the nsw.gov.au website.
Keeping Seniors Connected As COVID Restrictions Lift
Seniors facing social isolation are the focus of a fast-tracked $600,000 funding boost by the NSW Government, as COVID restrictions begin to ease.
Round Two of the Reducing Social Isolation for Seniors Grant Program will fund community groups to provide activities which keep older people active and engaged.
Community links can be a lifeline, in particular for older people who might live alone or be isolated from their family or friends.
Grants of up to $60,000 will go towards new and existing programs that promote seniors' social inclusion. Projects must have a COVID-safe plan and run until December 2022.
Applications for the Reducing Social Isolation for Seniors Grant Program are open until Monday, 15 November.

Support For NSW Women's Week Events
Women and girls across NSW will benefit from a range of community, education and mentoring opportunities during the 2022 NSW Women's Week thanks to a $100,000 grants program from the NSW Government.
I am encouraging local councils and not-for-profits to apply for a share of the funding to host events between the 7th and 13th March 2022.
We are looking for events that not only bring women and girls together in a COVID Safe setting but also provide practical support to help women across the region.
Apply for the NSW Women's Week Grants Program before 15 November 2021 womennsw.smartygrants.com.au/WWG22
