SINGAPORE: Singapore households can use their S$300 (US$222) in Community Development Council (CDC) vouchers from Tuesday (June 25).

Each Singapore household received S$500 in vouchers from the CDC in January.

Gan Kim Yong at the launch event at the West Coast Community Center on Tuesday.

This is the first time two tranches of CDC vouchers have been awarded in the same calendar year.

In February, in Budget 2024, then Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong announced that Singaporeans would receive more payments to help with cost-of-living concerns. Among the payments were S$600 in CDC vouchers; Half of them can now be used and the remaining half will be disbursed in January 2025.

Eight supermarkets with more than 410 outlets are also part of this year’s plan, including Ang Mo Supermarket, Giant Singapore, HAO Mart, NTUC FairPrice, Prime Supermarket, Sheng Siong, U-Stars Supermarket and Cold Storage.

“I am also glad that, like the previous tranche of CDC vouchers, some participating street vendors, merchants and supermarkets are also extending their own discounts and rebates when residents use CDC vouchers in their stores,” said Mr Gan , adding that they will be advertised by individual stores and supermarkets.
