Vermont Wants to Pay You $10,000 to Move There

by Bryce Gruber

We think it’s a good idea

If a free $10,000 sounds too good to be true, we hope you’re sitting down. This is a totally real law that Vermont Governor Phil Scott signed into law this week, from the same state that boasts pink salt spas and CBD cocktails.¬†We obviously think you should their offer to give you free money seriously.

The program is for out-of-staters to move to Vermont and work from home for a company based in another state. The Remote Worker Grant Program will take effect on January 1, 2019, and will help cover moving, living, and working expenses, according to Quartz. The grants can be used for relocation, computer software and hardware, high speed internet, and even access to co-working space.

The $10,000 will be distributed over two years, but all we’re hearing is that Vermont wants you and your new spouse to have loads of free cash so you can afford to be homeowners. Did we mention you’re allowed to use the money as a down payment on a home? The funds will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis, so you should probably hustle on this.
