Vermont Worker Relocation Incentive Program Now Open for Applications for Relocating and Remote Workers
The Worker Relocation Incentive Program is now live at ThinkVermont.com. This program will provide grants of up to $7,500 to both new workers (moving to Vermont to take a Vermont job) and remote workers (moving to Vermont and bringing their job with them) to defray moving costs. The program was passed with $3 million in funding by the Vermont Legislature. The VTTA advocated in support of these grants as an added incentive for workers in tech roles to make Vermont home.
This new program includes all occupations across all sectors, including tech roles
The program also includes a pre-approval process for those who have not yet moved to the state. The pre-approval informs applicants prior to moving if they are eligible to receive a grant once they relocate, and it reserves funding to pay their grant once they complete their move and submit the required verification documentation.
