Dreaming of a fresh start? These towns and cities will pay you as much as $15,000 to move there.

Baltimore is providing down-payment and closing-cost assistance for prospective homebuyers through a lottery.

Places across the US offer cash, homes, and other perks to lure remote workers and other relocators.

Insider rounded up the states, cities, and towns that are rewarding people to move there.

The requirements to claim the incentives vary from full-time residency to a real-estate purchase.

Remote work and the search for affordable housing have permanently reshaped where people live, and cities across the US are noticing.

A number of places are offering new residents big incentives, such as cash or free land.

Lillian Griffith, a 25-year-old data engineer, moved from Alpharetta, Georgia, to Tulsa, Oklahoma, in August 2022 to take advantage of the Tulsa Remote program, which granted her $10,000 simply for relocating to the city.

"The Tulsa Remote program is not some elitist program that only accepts people who work in high-paying positions," Griffith previously told Business Insider. "It's more about pulling people who can bring a good culture to the city."

While some cities are doling out cash for remote workers, hoping their presence will boost the local economy, others are looking to attract new talent. Hamilton, Ohio a city of 63,000 about 20 miles north of Cincinnati is courting recent college graduates with a program that offers up to $15,000 a year toward student-loan repayments.

Other cities are more interested in boosting their population. In Lincoln, Kansas, a small town about two hours north of Wichita, relocators can nab free residential plots of land just outside the city's downtown if they agree to certain design guidelines.

Insider rounded up the places across the US that are dishing out perks to anyone who moves there.

Too bad they don't incentivize people to move out of a state.

6x6 - States do offer huge incentives to move out. It just doesn't come in the form of cash in your pocket. It comes in the form of high taxes, unfavorable business policies, community deterioration, etc. We talk about it on this forum regularly.
