Want a change of scenery? Vermont will pay you $7,500 to move there | The Optimist Daily
Today’s Solutions: July 18, 2024

If you’ve been priced out of living in cities like San Francisco or New York, Vermont wants you to consider an alternative. In a new program that will begin next year, the state will pay relocation costs for workers who get jobs at Vermont companies. It’s a variation on another program, launched earlier this year, that reimburses remote workers up to $10,000 when they move to the state.

Now you might be wondering why in the world would you want to move to Vermont, but the truth is Vermont is a fantastic place to live. In fact, a CNBC report in 2018 ranked Vermont as the best place to live in the U.S. based on the natural environment, health, low crime, and other factors; the state is also known for its local food, breweries, charming towns, and progressive politics. People who are interested in moving can contact state officials through a program called ThinkVermont, which can then connect them with local employers.
