Vermont will give you $10,000 if you move there and work remotely. If you started fantasizing about living in Vermont last May, when the state passed a new law offering to pay remote workers up to $10,000 to relocate, the time has come to make your maple-syrup-coated dreams a reality. 
Applications opened on January 1. To get a grant, remote workers will need to move to Vermont first—the program offers reimbursements, not money in advance. For the state, the program is one way to try to address its shrinking population. 
“We’re the second-to-smallest state in the nation, and we’re also getting older, so we really need to make sure there’s more of a workforce here,” says Joan Goldstein, commissioner of the Vermont Department of Economic Development, which is running the Remote Worker Grant Program. 
The entire state has a population of a little more than 600,000, roughly the size of Louisville, Kentucky. Vermont also recognized that a growing number of Americans work remotely—nearly two-thirds of companies today have remote workers. And one recent survey found that hiring managers think it will continue to become even more common and that many city dwellers elsewhere are struggling with rent on increasingly overpriced apartments.
