The city of West Lafayette has joined a growing list of communities to offer incentives to encourage remote workers to relocate there. The Journal & Courier reports up to $50,000 in funding toward a city relocation project was approved at this week’s West Lafayette Board of Public Works and Safety meeting.
“The project itself is (incentive) for people to relocate to West Lafayette,” Erin Easter, West Lafayette director of development said. “So there is a small stipend that’s involved. It’s greater if you’re relocating to the Discovery Park district where (the Purdue Research Foundation) and Tmap have coordinated with IEDC on funding.”
Indianapolis-based Tmap launched the MakeMyMove platform in 2020. The website highlights communities that are hoping to attract talent by offering a variety of incentives, such as relocating expenses.
The publication says the city is working with the Purdue Research Foundation to attract high-tech workers.
