As Illinois residents continue to leave in record numbers, one city is dangling a $10,000 bonus to move there. With the pandemic in full swing, and more and more people able to work from home no matter where their home might be, city leaders in Tulsa, Oklahoma, are trying to capitalize on that trend. They’re offering people $10,000 to relocate to Tulsa. Tulsa is the state’s second-largest city. It was originally settled by Native Americans, and was home to the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921. But wait, there’s more. Grant Bumgarner, Tulsa Remote’s community manager, says their opera is among the nation’s top 10, they have a beautiful ballet, and museums. All that and a charming small-town way of life. The city will pay people $10,000 to do the job they’re already doing, just from Tulsa, for one year. This is the third year of the program. The first year they accepted 70 people out of 10,000 applicants, and the second year they brought in over 350 people from 25,000 applications. The city is now taking applications for 2021. Here’s the complete story from Fox 59.
