Vermont will start giving people up to $10,000 to move there, but there is one condition
To attract young people wanting to start a new life while working remotely, the State of Vermont is willing to pay with their new program starting 2019.
Working remotely steadily gain more popularity every year. An online magazine about coworking, Deskmag, predict that an astounding 1.7 million people will work remotely in 2018.
To qualify for a possible grant, applicants must be employed fulltime by a business outside the state of Vermont. Money supplied by the grant serves to cover costs associated with relocation, membership fees for a coworking space, etc.

After playing the same numbers for years it finally paid off, making him the biggest lottery winner in New York state history. After taxes, he received a lump sum payment of $198 million. After Robert’s sudden windfall he said:
