Choose Topeka Relocation Program
By Kansas City Star
For 3 years, Topeka has been paying people up to $15K to move there. Is it working?
Kenyon and Stacey Gleason were already planning to move to Topeka from South Dakota.
She was accepted wo Washburn University School of Law with a hefty financial aid package. He worked remotely, so could live anywhere with an internet connection. They liked Topeka: warmer weather, quiet neighborhoods and easy access to an international airport in Kansas City.
It wasn’t until they were shopping for homes with their Topeka real estate agent that they learned another financial incentive awaited them.
Kenyon could apply for Choose Topeka’s relocation program, which gives remote workers who move to Shawnee County $10,000 toward the purchase of a home.
