Because New England is stunning this time of year
On May 30, 2018, Gov. Phil Scott, signed into law a bill that will give a number of remote workers who move to Vermont from another state up to $10,000 to help ease the transition – and moving costs.
Remote workers that relocate and take part in the program need to be employed FT by a business based outside of Vermont and become a FT Vermont resident in 2019.
According to the New York Times, “The grant money will be distributed on a first-come first-served basis, and $125,000 will be available in 2019. Qualifying workers will get up to $5,000 per year for two years, but Mr. Sirotkin said he could see the grant offsetting costs for up to 100 people in 2019, since most people are unlikely to have $5,000 in resettlement expenses per year.
“In 2020, the program is expected to receive up to $250,000, then $125,000 in 2021. After that, if funding remains available, the state is planning to have up to $100,000 in grants per year.
The program’s website, Stay-to-Stay was created as a “lodging and networking package to connect guests to employers, entrepreneurs and potential neighbors in local communities around Vermont.”
