In May of 2018, Vermont Governor Phil Scott signed a bill funding a state initiative that offers $10,000 to people willing to move to Vermont and work remotely for an out of state employer.
As of January 1st, 2019, the Remote Worker Grant Program is accepting applications.
At the program's inception, Vermont budgeted funds to support 100 grants for the first three years and 20 additional workers each year from then on. Grant recipients can receive $5,000 a year over two years and will be chosen on a first-come, first-served basis. These grants can be used to cover moving, living and working expenses, including relocation, computer software and hardware, broadband internet and access to a co-working space.
So far, the application for the Remote Worker Grant Program has been downloaded thousands of times, but no completed applications have been submitted.
