Cayuga County restaurants are now able to register to participate in the “Cayuga Counts” restaurant voucher program. Restaurant owners can go to before 4 p.m. Wednesday August 18 to complete the online form to participate.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Starting on Monday, August 23rd, at 1 p.m. the public can go to to register for the dollar amount they want to spend up to $100.
  2. A voucher will be emailed to them. The voucher has no value until redeemed at the restaurant.
  3. They will present the voucher with the unique identifier to the participating restaurant and pay the face value of the voucher.
  4. Restaurant will provide a matching gift card for DOUBLE that amount. For example, present voucher for $50, pay $50, and the customer receives a gift card for $100.
  5. Gift card can be used 24 hours after purchase and NOT the day of purchase.
  6. Vouchers are ONE TIME USE ONLY and EXPIRE on SEPTEMBER 13, 2021.
  7. The restaurant will submit to Cayuga County the receipt of sale for the gift card and a copy of the voucher (or the voucher number clearly written on the receipt) for reimbursement. Reimbursement submissions should be emailed to
