Vermont Will Pay You to Colonize It

Vermont will pay you $10,000 to move there and work from home
On Wednesday, Quartz reports, Vermont Governor Phil Scott signed a bill into law that will pay people $10,000 if they move to Vermont and work remotely for an employer out of state. The Remote Worker Grant Program will take effect on January 1, 2019, and will help cover moving, living and working expenses. Grants can be used for relocation, computer software and hardware, broadband internet and access to a co-working space.

Currently, Vermont has budgeted funds to support 100 grants for the first three years and 20 additional workers each year from then on. Grant recipients will receive $10,000 over two years that will be distributed on a first-come, fist-served basis.
Not a lot of money. Also, your role here is similar to that of someone receiving an all expense paid vacation to a remote castle in Transylvania.

On the other hand, if you wanted to take over a state, this one is ripe for the taking. Right-wingers need to figure out a policy that makes progressive flee though, otherwise it'll turn to crap in a generation or two following its conquest.
