Out of all the cities in Indiana, this would be the one offering incentives for people to move there. And, even though I've been there many and it's a great little town, I probably can't move there because of the simple fact I've spent considerable time in another Indiana city. I'm not sure it's even allowed. LOL

Here, let me explain

You see, I went to Indiana University and that means my forever rival is Purdue University. Purdue is located in the same Indiana town that is looking for people to relocate there, West Lafayette, Indiana. 

I will say though, that West Lafayette was such a cute city and Purdue was such a really good school, I almost chose to attend college there. It was my second choice. I would encourage people who are looking for a town, in Indiana, to move to, go visit West Lafayette.

West Lafayette wants you

According to stackerspace.com ,

West Lafayette, Indiana, is home to Purdue University, and the school wants you to make the city your new home, too. Through its <a href="https://www.workfrompurdue.com/" rel="nofollow">Work From Purdue </a>program, Purdue offers professionals the opportunity to work remotely and live in the Discovery Park District. By relocating here through the program, movers can earn stipends from $1,000 to $5,000. To qualify, you’ll need to move to West Lafayette within six months of being accepted into the program. However, applicants will also need to live in the city for at least one year and will be responsible for finding their own housing.
