Move to Vermont. Work From Home. Get $10000. (Or at Least Something.)

So, you can't move to Vermont to open a branch of an out-of-state business; they're truly looking for lone wolves.

But since the money is meant to reimburse expenses incurred in moving to Vermont-computer software, hardware, and broadband Internet, and fees for membership in a co-working space are specifically mentioned-it makes some sense.

Picturesque Vermont has a shrinking population and this effort is targeted at changing those demographics. Starting in 2019, those who move to Vermont and work remotely for an out-of-state employer will be eligible to receive $10,000 over two years from the Vermont government to cover expenses such as relocation fees, a coworking space, a computer, or Internet connectivity. Vermont has budgeted grants for about 100 new remote workers in the first three years of the program and about 20 additional workers per year for every year after. Money is money, even in Vermont.

The northeastern U.S. state of 625,000 people has gorgeous landscapes, great ski slopes-and a rapidly shrinking tax base.

Goldstein said her office is already getting inquiries from workers interested in relocating. In order to become eligible, applicants must become full-time residents of Vermont after January 1, 2019. Funds will be distributed on a first come, first served basis, and there are annual limits to the grants.

For those thinking about making the move, Vermont.org has this pitch, "It's true, Vermont is not for everyone".

Just $125,000 has been allocated for 2019, with the cap increasing to $250,000 in 2020, before dropping back to $125,000 in 2021. It's not a bad deal for those among us who might enjoy enjoy skiing, syrup slathered stacks of flapjacks, and locally made cheeses, not to mention some of the best flannel the world has ever known.
