Wondering where to spend your government-sponsored $100? Instead of just searching based on postal codes and street names, you can now search using an interactive map!
Here’s everything you need to know about the CDC Vouchers and the new map:
A Visual Guide to Where You Can Spend Your Vouchers
You can now see where all the participating stalls are for your next grocery haul, by clicking “View all merchants on a map” on the CDC Vouchers Merchant Go Where website.
When you zoom out, there are red dots indicating the number of participating stalls in the area. You can zoom in to see the specific details for each area.
This feature aims to provide residents with a visual view of the spread and locations of merchants and hawkers, by merging data from the Singapore Land Authority’s OneMap and the Community Development Councils (CDC).
In a joint press release with the People Association (PA) on Sunday (9 January), the CDCs announced the launch of the new map function.
Together with the current functions of searching by postal code and street name, these features are part of CDC’s efforts to provide residents, merchants and hawkers with a convenient and smooth CDC Vouchers process.
This is especially since the festive season is fast arriving, with more people looking to use their vouchers for festive goodies.
What Are CDC Vouchers?
In case you didn’t know, all Singaporean households are eligible to collect $100 worth of CDC vouchers. They can be used at any participating hawker and merchant stall.
Each household with at least one Singaporean will be able to claim this $100, and the vouchers can be used till 31 December 2022.
For all the small details like how to claim and use the vouchers, you can read this article.
