RE:  Interesting Idea for a New Cohousing Community

Five cities or states that will pay you to move there. Payments vary and some 
are specifically offers to pay off student loans. Most seem to be in the range 
of $10,000 that might be a downpayment on an affordable unit.

With an advance scout to set things up, it could be doable.

If you're a full-time remote employee: Think Vermont. Applications open in 
January for this program that pays you up to $10,000 over two years just for 
setting down new roots.
If you're a very recent grad or went to college in Maine: Opportunity Maine. 
Pay off your loans in a state that refunds recent grads for loan payments. The 
refund comes as a tax credit so, for example, if you pay $2,500 in loan 
payments and your state income tax bill is $2,100, you would only pay $400 in 
If you're a freelancer or work remotely: Tulsa Remote. Get $10,000 and a 
coworking space. The hip program, funded by the George Kaiser Family 
Foundation, initially planned to attract 20-25 people and was deluged by 
applications, which organizers capped at 10,000. They?ve recently welcomed over 
100 new residents, and now the program is back, looking for Tulsa?s 250 newest 
movers and shakers.
If you're a recent STEAM grad: Go Hamilton. The one in Ohio, which will pay off 
up to $10,000 of your student loans over three years. That?s totally worth a 
three-year detour to Butler County.
If you're still buried by student loans 7-10 years out of school: St. Clair 
County, Michigan, is calling your name and willing to pay back up to $15,000 of 
your loans through its Come Home Award.

TOPEKA, KS is also offering resettlement grants of up to $15,000 to come there, 
take a job and build or buy a new home. Not sure if an entire group could move 
there and co-develop a cohousing community, whether as a New Build or a 
Neighborhood Retro-fit.  It might take less time to explore this opportunity 
than to search for cheap land in HI.

Cohousing Cheers for a Wonderful Cohousing Christmas to you all.
