Eligible workers can receive $5,000 per year, not to exceed a total of $10,000 over the life of the program, as part of the remote worker grant program. On Wednesday, the new legislation was signed into law by Governor Phil Scott. He hopes a separate state program will also help.

The bill's backers say it's an effort to address a challenge with the state's small, aging population-a 2017 census estimate placed it at just under 630,000, making Vermont less populous than Columbus, Ohio. That's why increasing our work power is without doubt one of the prime priorities of my administration. In March, Gov. Scott and the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing announced the Stay-to-Stay initiative, a program created to help tourists permanently relocate to the state.

According to the Stay-to-Stay website, the program is a "lodging and networking package to connect guests to employers, entrepreneurs and potential neighbors in local communities around Vermont".

Vermont could spend up to $125,000 on the incentives next year - enough to cover the expenses of 25 workers who max out their possible grants.
