This City Will Pay You to Move There Post-Lockdown

If you're looking to make a major change in your post-lockdown life, the city of Savannah, Georgia, will pay to you move there. In an effort to draw new talent in the tech sector, Savannah Economic Development Authority (SEDA) has established a financial incentive program that pays $2,000 for moving expenses to qualified technology workers willing to relocate to the area. According to the rules of the initiative, workers can be "self-employed, remote workers of technology firms located elsewhere, or relocating to take a position with a technology company in the region." Incredibly, this means you could receive the incentive benefit while continuing to work remotely for your current company — something your employer might be amenable to as they redefine the workplace post-lockdown. Residents of Savannah enjoy a relatively low cost of living compared to national and state averages, and it’s considered one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the nation. Qualified candidates for the program must have three years of experience in the tech sector and must relocate to Chatham County with a one-year rental lease or purchase a property in the area and live there for a minimum of one month before applying for funding.
