Here's your chance to get out and about even if you're strapped for cash with the state government's Dine & Discover NSW program now rolling out statewide.

As part of the program, the government is handing out $100 to each NSW resident over the age of 18 to be used in hospitality venues and entertainment and recreation activities.

"This stimulus will give businesses the boost they need after an incredibly tough 12 months and will encourage customers to get out and about safely," Premier Gladys Berejiklian said.

"These vouchers will help businesses keep their doors open and grow while providing customers with much-needed hip pocket relief."

Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said the program would bring much-needed relief to some of the State's hardest-hit industries.

"We want businesses to grow and thrive and for workers to stay in jobs. This stimulus is exactly what NSW needs as our economy goes from strength to strength," Mr Perrottet said.

"Whether it's a cafe, restaurant, cinema or gallery, these industries have done it tough during the pandemic, and these vouchers will encourage more customers to come through the door and spend."

Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello said the vouchers were simple and easy to use, with customers able to spend them via the Service NSW app.

"The app is seamless, contactless and safe. We are using digital technology to make life easier for customers and businesses," Mr Dominello said.

You can apply online for your vouchers through the latest version of the Service NSW app and website. A non-digital solution will be made available to customers who don't have a smartphone or compatible device.

Vouchers will need to be used before the end of June. You can't spend your voucher on retail, alcohol, gambling, tobacco or accommodation and you won't be able to spend your vouchers at all once.

The vouchers can only be used at eligible businesses with a COVID Safety Plan and are registered as COVID Safe. If you have an eligible business, it's still not too late to register in the program.
