Who doesn’t need an extra $10,000? If you are looking for a way to make a little extra cash, then have we got a deal for you! Vermont is ready to pay for you to become a resident of their amazing state.
Yes, it’s true!
“Governor Phil Scott signed a bill which states that starting in 2019, the state will pay people who move to Vermont and work remotely for an out-of-state employer. The $10,000 will come over two years, and is supposed to help with relocation expenses, computers, internet, coworking memberships, and other work-related expenses.”
Vermont is a beautiful state why would they want to pay people to come to live in the state?
It’s a problem that is actually on the rise. Due to the rising age of the population in Vermont. Half of the people living in Vermont are over the age of 43, which is almost five years older than the average age of the rest of the United States.
The governor hopes that the bill will encourage young people to come to Vermont to start their lives.
“I was hoping to accomplish a couple of things with this bill. One was to encourage young people who are computer savvy to stay in the state and work remotely. The second thing this bill could help accomplish is drawing people into the state.”
Governor Scott had this statement:
“We have about 16,000 fewer workers than we did in 2009. That’s why expanding our workforce is one of the top priorities of my administration. We must think outside the box to help more Vermonters enter the labor force and attract more working families and young professionals to Vermont.”
“Vermont’s Remote Worker Grant Program, you have to be employed full time by an out-of-state employer that will allow you to work from home or a remote office. You’ll also have to become a full-time resident of Vermont starting in 2019. The current legislation will pay up to 100 people in 2019 to move to Vermont, and after that initial stage, 20 people a year will be eligible for grants.”
It seems like a pretty awesome bill and Vermont is one of the most gorgeous places. I may be the next writer living in Vermont.
