Are you loving the work from home lifestyle and interested in a more affordable place to live? One metropolitan area is offering to pay you just to move there.
The Northwest Arkansas Council is investing more than $1 million over six months to attract talent to the region, via their “Life Works Here” initiative, setup to tout the lifestyle and career benefits of the region.
“With one of the best costs of living, plentiful outdoor lifestyle perks, nationally ranked arts, culture and cuisine scenes, and per capita income that’s 14% higher than the national average, the Northwest Arkansas region offers a unique opportunity to create balance for those eager to move from congested and expensive larger cities and suburbs,” the council says, via findingnwa.com.
“Northwest Arkansas is a great place to work, live and play: for recent grads, families, career changers, entrepreneurs, artists and more,” the website says. “We’re offering top remote working talent – maybe you? – a $10,000 cash incentive to move to the region. The funds will help with everything you need to set up your new life in Northwest Arkansas.”
If that’s not enough, they’re throwing in a bike to sweeten the deal.
“In addition to $10,000, incentive recipients will be gifted a street or mountain bicycle to help you take advantage of the 162 miles of paved trails, the 37-mile Razorback Regional Greenway and the 322 miles of world-class mountain biking trails that has made outdoor enthusiasts flock to the area. Alternatively, participants can choose an annual membership to one of our world-class arts and cultural institutions.”
