While moving to Arkansas may not have been in your five-year plan, there are some offers that one can’t refuse.

The Life Works Here initiative is designed to attract new talents to Northwest Arkansas, and it’s doing so by throwing in $10,000 and either a street or mountain bike to help you more easily explore the area’s many trails. You can even forego the bike and choose an annual membership to one of the region’s cultural institutions instead.

The current accessibility of remote work due to the pandemic is causing a mass exodus from cities in the US, and Northwest Arkansas is keen to capitalize on this trend.

Considered one of the best places to live in the US thanks to its outdoor lifestyle, cost of living, art and cuisine scenes, and per-capita income that’s 14 percent higher than the national average, the area is looking to attract new talents.

To apply, visit Northwest Arkansas’ website and fill out the online form.
