Employer Incentive Program

Our Employee Incentive Program requires interested individuals to secure a job in one of our counties with a participating employer before they are eligible to receive the $5,000 moving incentive. To get connected with someone on our team to help you, please fill out this form.

Once you have received a job offer, the employer must send a copy of the offer letter from the hiring company to verify the job offer, job title, and salary, which must be a minimum of $50,000.

After program approval, you will receive the $5,000.00 incentive, divided into two payments of $2,500.00:

  • The first payment will be disbursed once the prospective employee arrives in the Radius region.

  • The second payment will be disbursed one year from the date of your arrival.
