The Remote Worker Grant Program would take care of the relocation and other expenses.

Only workers who become full-time Vermont residents after January 1, 2019, will be eligible.

The state will award the grants on a first come, first serve basis and has allocated an amount of $500,000 for the next three years to the same goal, the AP report said.

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.
