This Town Will Pay You To Relocate

Here is one way to encourage people to come to your town – pay them to move there. The mayor of Candela, Nicola Gatta, is paying people who are willing to resettle. This little medieval town used to have more than 8000 people living in it. Today there are only 2700 residents.

As an incentive, Mayor Gatta is offering up to 200 euros to encourage people to come.

Stefano Bascianelli, the mayor’s right-hand man said,

“This is how it works: 800 euros for singles, 1,200 euros for couples, 1,500 to 1,800 euros for three-member families, and over 2,000 euros for families of four to five people.”

What do you have to do to get the money? You’ll need to become a resident of Candela, rent a house and have a job with a salary of at least 7500 euros a year.

As Bascianelli said, “We don’t want people flocking here thinking they get to live off the town hall’s revenues, all new residents must work and have an income.”
