TOPEKA, Kan. (WFLA/CNN) – The capital of Kansas is willing to pay people to move there.
Topeka officials approved a new program that offers incentives in hopes to attract more people to live and work there.
The program is called ‘Choose Topeka’ and will pay up to $10,000 to people who rent and $15,000 to those who purchase or rehabilitate a home, according to the news release from the Greater Topeka Partnership.
These incentives are performance-based, once a resident has spent a year living in the community.
The city hopes this will boost the area’s population and work toward fostering an “Intentional community.”
