The town of Greensburg, Indiana is willing to pay a total of $7,000 in cash and gift incentives, in addition to free grandparents for eligible candidates.
In a stunt driven by hopes of enticing remote workers to move to their town, Greensburg is putting it all on the table. Representatives of the Decatur County Community Foundation Tami and her husband, who also happens to be the school bus driver, are offering their services when it comes to babysitting your children and “[Standing] in on Grandparents’ Day at school.”
According to the MakeMyMove website, they’re working with the city “to attract high-wage, out-of-state remote workers to live in Greensburg, IN.,” a city spokesperson told FOX TV Stations.
Concerned that a move to Greensburg would be too expensive? Eligible applicants will receive $5,000 to offset their moving expenses in addition to a 1-year membership to the YMCA, gift cards to season farmers markets, tickets throughout the year to local playhouse, access to a concierge team to help with their relocation and opportunities to join the community leaders for annual events such as the Hospital Gala, Chamber Annual Dinner and the Decatur County United Fund Annual Auction – everything but the kitchen sink!
It’s important to note that this project is being funded and administered through the Decatur County Economic Development Income Tax fund, and the incentives are either being donated or funded through the Greensburg/Decatur County Economic Development Corporation’s community development funds.
