What Is the CDC Vouchers Scheme?
The CDC Vouchers Scheme was first launched in June 2020, where vouchers were distributed to households to be redeemed at participating local merchants and hawkers in the heartlands islandwide.
This was an initiative in a bid to help residents with daily expenses and also to boost local businesses which have been impacted by COVID-19.
On 18 October, it was announced that the CDC vouchers will be received in the upcoming months and will be distributed as digital vouchers (e-vouchers).
Designed with flexibility in mind, half of the vouchers released this round are meant to be used at participating hawkers and heartland merchants, while the other half at participating supermarkets.
Who Is Eligible for CDC Vouchers?
Although this scheme was initially catered to lower-income households, the CDC voucher eligibility has now extended to all Singaporean households!
How to Claim The CDC Vouchers?
Now that the CDC vouchers will be distributed as e-vouchers, the collection process will be slightly different from before, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying your $300!
Your CDC vouchers will come in denominations of $2, $5, and $10, so make sure you plan how you will spend them wisely.

This will bring you to a page to log in to your Singpass account.

Before you get too excited, there are just a few things to note regarding the CDC vouchers as of the time of writing.
- One household is only entitled to $300 worth of CDC vouchers, so only one person from each household can redeem the vouchers.
- Like all vouchers, denominations are fixed. No change will be given if you spend $10 on something worth $9.
- Vouchers can be shared among members of the same household. Just tap on the “Share My Vouchers” button, and you will be able to generate a link you can send to members of the same household.
- If you do not have a smartphone to redeem the e-vouchers, you can collect physical vouchers at the nearest community centre.
Above are just some things you need to know about the CDC vouchers. If you have any more questions, feel free to check out the FAQs on CDC’s website.
How To Use The CDC Vouchers?

Running out of food at home? You can even get some groceries from the minimart downstairs!
Everyone is living and/or working in the same neighbourhood. With the CDC helping you save $300 in expenses, you can use the vouchers to help the merchants working in that same neighbourhood.
For those who are feeling adventurous, you could try doing a #nospendweek challenge with these vouchers, where you could get your haircut, buy groceries from neighbourhood minimarts and meals from your favourite hawker centres all covered.
