Impressed by the success of Vermont’s incentive program, Shawnee County officials recently announced a new initiative to offer financial incentives to people willing to live and work in Topeka Kansas. The program is one among several recently announced relocation grants that have been recently announced.
Shawnee County’s population has been unchanged for the last decade, and this program aims to change that.
The program requires that you live in the city and work for participating employers that would pay up to $15,000 in the first year. Renters could receive up to $10,000.
Topeka’s cost of living is around 10% below the national average, and the average home costs around $125,000, so the maximum benefit if applied towards your purchase amounts to a 12% savings. Monthly rent in the area is around $760.
