These Cities Will Pay You to Relocate and Work
If there is one thing that people need more of right now, its opportunities.
Longer and stricter national lockdown in response to the pandemic are looming.
Unemployment, food insecurity, and business closings are at an all-time high.
There is no future in despair.
Are you willing to move to a rural, small town, or smaller urban city locale? You can save money on the cost of living expenses.
Moving to a less populated city to create or brainstorm new entrepreneurial opportunities may be the way to go.
And there are many cities that will pay you to do it.
Harmony is a small 1,000-person town located about 133 miles southeast of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
It is an idyllic, small-town with the kind of Americana and Midwest scenic aesthetics that fit in a Hallmark channel movie.
However, the town of Harmony is aspiring to grow and attract young families and workers to aid in that endeavor. Harmony’s official town motto is, “nice place to visit, even better place to live.”
The municipality of Harmony has developed a, “Residential Home Construction Rebate,” program to entice people to move there.
If you move to Harmony, Minnesota and build a home valued between $125,000 to $250,000 or more, you qualify for a rebate.
The rebate offer ranges between $5,000 to $12,000 depending on the size and market value of the home.
You should be self-employed or have sufficient savings to move to Harmony.
Tulsa, Oklahoma is a city with a population of about 62,000. This is a city with a heavy history of political and racial strife that is aspiring to remake itself in the 21st century.
The Tulsa Remote program is a city initiative that was started in November 2018 to attract new, young, and ambitious remote works to the city.
If you are willing to live in Tulsa as a remote worker, the city will give you $10,000 in installment payments over a year. These payments will help reimburse your moving and apartment hunting expenses.
You must already be self-employed and have sustaining work opportunities.
The Tulsa Remote worker initiative can also help you find office space, if necessary, and network with other entrepreneurs.
Consider Your Options
I don’t recommend that you relocate your life on a whim.
Consider your options, cost of living expenses, and future plans.
Unfortunately, the economic crisis caused by the pandemic may get worse before it gets better.
But there is no future in despair.
