Italy Offers $33,000 To People Who Want To Settle In Their Villages

Italy is paying $33,000 to people who wish to move and settle in a village called Calabria.

The southern town of Calabria is offering people of diverse backgrounds to live and make a living there over the course of three years.

The Italians are embarking on this project to pump life into their rural areas, revive their local economy and offer homes to people who have lost their residence especially with the flood situation brewing in Europe.

The mayor of the town, Gianpetro Coppola explained that “we want this to be an experiment of social inclusion. Draw people to live in the region, enjoy the settings, spruce up unused town locations.

But as you might expect, there are a few catches. In order to get the funds from Calabria, new residents must promise that they will launch a small business or take a specific professional job. And don’t think just anyone can move there.

These villages want an infusion of youth, so it’s limited to new residents age 40 and younger. Plus, if you get accepted into the program, you must move within 90 days.

According to CNN, this isn’t the first time the Italians have made such a generous offer by running a project like this. A similar program was done at the village of San Stefano di Sessanio, which offered people a $52,000 grant in cash to live and work there.

Similar case with the village of Santa Fiora where interested people were offered free rent in the various houses and even more so if you opened a hotel or had a baby. Another village also lured people in when they offered houses for sale starting as low as 1euro to $9,000.
