Digital nomads can be paid up to $20,000 to move to these US cities

Remote work is becoming pervasive across all sectors of our economy, and as such, more workers are looking to take advantage of their digital nomad status. As such, several small towns in the United States took notice and created unique ways to persuade these workers come to live and work in their cities.

From tax breaks, property deals, and sometimes even cash incentives, various locations across the country are trying to attract these remote workers. These workers can’t afford real estate prices in larger cities, strive to build a close-knit community or other incentives for remote work.
