CDC Vouchers Scheme 2024

The $500 CDC Vouchers will be allocated equally (i.e., $250 each) to be spent at participating supermarkets and participating heartland merchants and hawkers.

This year, the CDC Vouchers can also be used at Cold Storage supermarket chains, along with other participating chains like Ang Mo Supermarket, Giant Singapore, NTUC FairPrice, Sheng Siong, Prime, Hao Mart and U Stars. These supermarkets would display the CDC Vouchers decal (as shown below) to indicate acceptance of the use of these vouchers.


Furthermore, the current number of participating heartland merchants and hawkers has also doubled from 11,000 to 23,000 since the scheme was introduced in 2021. Just look out for the CDC Vouchers decal displayed at stall shopfronts to know whether the individual merchant or hawker accepts these vouchers.

Before you go online to redeem the vouchers, do note that only 1 member per household will need to visit the website and log in with their Singpass to claim the CDC vouchers on behalf of everyone.

CDC recently added new map features that will help household residents easily locate and support their neighbour stalls. If you’re wondering where the nearest participating hawkers and heartlands merchants are, you can enter the street name or postal code on the CDC page. For example, by entering Raffles Place in the search bar, the search results would show the number of participating merchants within 2km. The list will show the stall’s name, address, and unit number so you can easily navigate to the stall.

You can also click on the interactive map that shows the number of merchants according to the district. If you click into each bubble, it’ll break down even further, showing merchants on a smaller scale. Once you’ve zoomed in on the map, clicking the bubble will open up the lists of merchants that show the stall’s name, address, and unit number, so you can easily navigate to the stall.

If any of your household members do not carry a smartphone or have their Singpass, especially seniors, there will be the option for them to print hardcopy vouchers. But they must do so at the community centres or clubs where they will be assisted by staff members. As these printed vouchers act like cash coupons, misplaced or lost hardcopy vouchers can be used by anyone who picks them up. So, best to safe keep these vouchers and be careful with who you’re sharing your voucher links with.
