 Five places in the USA that will pay you to move there

Relocating can come with a host of potential benefits, ranging from enhanced quality of life to radically reduced accommodation costs – and even substantial state tax savings.

Since the pandemic, we’ve heard from many of our readers who moved elsewhere in search of more freedom, lower living costs and access to better opportunities.

Some moved to benefit from lower state taxes or greater homeschooling freedom.

Others moved to the countryside – or even to places like Costa Rica and Mexico – in order to skirt the oppressive mandates and city dramas where they lived.

Simultaneously, attracting new, younger residents is vital for any town or city to flourish.

But upping sticks – even to move across state lines – is not exactly a trivial decision, and so an increasing number of states, towns and cities are offering juicy financial incentives to lure new residents.

Here are some of the top ones we found…

Places offering financial incentives for new residents in 2023

TULSA, OKLAHOMA: The Tulsa Remote program offers $10,000 in cash and additional benefits to remote workers – either US citizens or green card holders – who relocate to Tulsa.

However, you can’t already be living in Oklahoma, and you have to apply for the program 
before purchasing or renting a home there. Importantly, you have to be employed remotely for a company located outside of Oklahoma on a full-time basis …

ALABAMA (SHOALS AREA): Remote workers are increasingly spoilt for choice when it comes to these types of relocation incentives. Alabama, too, is looking to attract digital workers, and its Remote Shoals program offers $10,000 in cash for qualifying applicants who move there.

You’ll have to move to an eligible city in the Shoals area – including Florence, Muscle Shoals, Tuscumbia and Sheffield – within six months of being approved. You’ll get to bank 25% ($2,500) of this incentive up-front, followed by an additional 25% after six months, and the remaining 50% ($5,000) after completing one year there.

Like with many competing relocation incentives, you’ll have to be at least 18 years old and eligible to live and work in the US when applying. You’ll also have to be earning a minimum annual income of at least $52,000.

Plus, you’ll have to be employed full-time, on a remote basis, by a company outside of Colbert and Lauderdale Counties.

WEST VIRGINIA: Is outdoor living your thing? Thanks to a program called Ascend West Virginia, moving to one of several participating mountain communities in the state could earn you $12,000 in cash… And free access to a coworking space.. Plus $2,500 in vouchers for outdoor recreational gear rentals and related activities.

In the first year of moving there, you’ll receive $10,000 in monthly installments (i.e. $833 per month). And after completing your second year of living there, you’ll receive an additional $2,000 bonus.

You must be at least 18 years old, and be a US national (or have a green card) to apply. In addition, you must either work remotely or be self-employed outside of West Virginia (with the ability to work remotely) on a full-time basis.

You must also be able to relocate there within six months of being accepted.

ROCHESTER, NEW YORK: If you’re a remote worker currently living within 300 miles of downtown Rochester, New York, the Greater ROC Remote program wants YOU… to move there.

The program will pay up to $10,000 to cover your relocation expenses, and you can apply for an additional $9,000 grant if you’re buying a home there.

You’ll have to be 18 years or older, and be allowed to live and work in the US. Crucially, you already have to be employed full-time as a remote worker.

And again, you’ll have to be able to relocate within six months of being approved under the program.

HAMILTON, OHIO: The Hamilton Community Foundation offers up to $10,000 in financial assistance to recent college graduates who move to Hamilton.

Talent Attraction Program (TAP) Scholarship is a “reverse scholarship”, which offers recent graduates assistance with student loan debt. Successful applicants may receive a total of up to $10,000 (at a rate of $300 per month).

However, if you cease employment, or move out of a designated neighborhood before the total funds have been disbursed, you will forfeit the right to any future payments.

To be eligible for the TAP Scholarship’s benefits you must:

  • Have graduated, within the last seven years, from a STEAM program (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, or Mathematics).
  • Not currently be living in any of the designated areas in Hamilton, but you must plan to move to one of several eligible locations in the city.
  • Be employed within Butler County, or employed full-time in a remote professional position.




Life Under Dem Controlled Cities NOT GOOD for Citizens

On January 31, Numbeo’s 2023 Crime Index reported that the United States has 12 of the 50 most dangerous cities in the world, more than any other nation. A separate study by John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, shows that the worst 5 percent of U.S. counties accounted for 73 percent of all homicides. Certain urban areas have turned into war zones.


 A large number of Americans have allowed their families to break down and, rather than deal with the problem, have instead antagonized the law enforcement officers trying to keep the peace. Only the moral laws revealed in the Holy Bible bring peace, freedom and fulfillment. But because our society rejects, ignores and mocks these laws, murders, rapes, robberies and other horrific crimes continue to worsen…


According to a recent poll by GoBankingRates, more than a third of respondents fear they will end up out of work this year because of a layoff. And 50% of respondents say they will be unable to afford essential bills and groceries if they lose their jobs.

SHTF Survival: 10 Disturbing Threats That You’re Probably Not Ready For


Bailouts begin - total system collapse temporarily averted (for now)

Three US banks collapsed last week (Silvergate, Silicon Valley Bank and Signature). Contagion took hold and quickly began to spread to other banks.

The entire US banking system would have collapsed starting today if not for the FDIC jumping in and offering to rescue even non-insured depositors at SVB.

 The Treasury and Fed are going to have to print money to prop up failing banks. And that's going to cause inflation to skyrocket even more.
