Bemidji in Minnesota offers you a new home and pays for the move

Bemidji may be familiar to fans of the Fargo TV series. Otherwise, the small Minnesota town of nearly 14,000 inhabitants probably isn’t on anyone’s radar screen in this country. The “218 Relocate” program aims to change that: it promises a new home, especially for people who work from home.

To ensure that the work-life balance is correct, newcomers are also included in a program that specifically supports them in making private contacts.
