7. Speaking of escapes, Vermont would like to offer you one.
On Wednesday, Gov. Phil Scott, signed into law a bill that will give people who move to Vermont from another state up to $10,000 to help ease the transition. Above, a quiet road in Fair Haven, Vt.
The initiative is part of a grant program designed to draw tech workers and revitalize the state’s aging work force. To qualify, you must be a full-time employee of a business based outside of Vermont, with the ability to work remotely.
The funds will be distributed on a first-come first-served basis, and $125,000 will be available in 2019.
