218 Relocate! Grab Your Compass and Head North

Greater Bemidji knows there are countless people who are dreaming of living in the North Country, but love their job. That’s why they created the 218 Relocate Incentive Plan. One thing Covid-19 has done is remake the way many of us are working. Telecommuting has been the way millions of people nationwide have learned to work in the past year. Zoom meetings and home offices have become the norm, and many businesses say that may not go away.

218 Relocate is a plan that incentivizes those who can telecommute to make the move north. PC Magazine just ranked Bemidji as one of the top 10 places to telecommute in the nation. Bemidji is years ahead of many locations with its readily available state of the art fiber optic network which is incredibly reliable and fast. Those who want to make the move could qualify for up to $2500 in moving expenses, as well as telecommuter expenses not already covered by your employer including gigabit internet service. Qualifiers also get a one year membership in the Launchpad co-working space, free membership in the Community Concierge Program designed to get you and your family plugged in to Bemidji and Teleworking support and tools.
