Vermont will pay people $10000 to move there and work remotely

Vermont governor signs bill to pay people $10K to move to state and work remotely

To apply via the state's Agency of Commerce and Community Development, remote workers will need to become full-time residents of Vermont.

Picturesque Vermont has a shrinking population and this effort is targeted at changing those demographics.

In addition to the program, Vermont has also launched another program, called Stay to Stay Weekends, that is aimed at getting the state's 13 million annual tourists to relocate to Vermont.

The newly-released 9-minute clip begins with cops administering a breathalyzer to Weinman, which she appears to pass. After a back and forth between Weinman and the officer, she refuses to give the officer her whole name.

Phil Scott signed a bill committing his state to paying people to pack their bags, move to his state and work remotely for a business in another state. Hence this new program, the New Remote Worker Grant Program, created to recruit young Millennial workers to Vermont. Expenses covered include relocation costs, home internet and co-working membership. Money is money, even in Vermont.

Vermont also faces an aging population, an issue that the state's Republican governor highlighted in his State of the State address earlier this year.

"This looks like an opportunity for us to bring people into the state who might not otherwise be here", Lyons, a Democrat, told the Globe on Friday.

Earlier this week, Rotondo called 911 after an unknown person reached him on his cellphone and called him a "loser". Rotondo argued that he had the right to stick around a while longer. "I love my parents immensely", he said.

Only workers who become full-time Vermont residents after January 1, 2019, will be eligible. But they better hurry. The grants will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis next year, and there's only $125,000 in grant money available in 2019. "Over the past quarter of a century, the median age nationally has increased by nearly five years to 37.8 while Vermont's has increased by 10 years".

For those thinking about making the move, Vermont.org has this pitch, "It's true, Vermont is not for everyone". And you may have heard, it snows here from time to time. Our definition of sprawl is the arms-wide-open stretch enjoyed while picnicking on the lake.
