It is no secret that California’s affordable housing crisis and worsening wildfire season are driving some residents out of The Golden State.
But in case you need an extra incentive to leave, the here a list of cities and states that are paying people to move in.
Those places include:
- Vermont, whose Remote Worker Grant Program funds grants of up to $10,000 encouraging people to work remotely in the Green Mountain State.
- Tulsa, Oklahoma, which is paying new residents up to $10,000 each to move to the city and work remotely for their existing employer.
- Detroit, Michigan, a city working its way back from the early-decade recession, which is offering paid fellowships for people willing to work for Detroit-area nonprofits and companies through the Challenge Detroit Program.
- North Platte, Nebraska, which pledges to match company signing bonuses for new hires up to $5,000 through the WORK NP program.
- Maine, where the Educational Opportunity Tax Credit gives recent grads the chance to reduce their student loan burden.
- Alaska, whose long-running Permanent Fund Dividend has given state residents an annual check funded by mineral royalties since 1976.
