The sunny island of Sardinia will pay you $15,000 to move there, forever!
The Italian dream, which includes enjoying the freshest and most delicious pasta every day, with a view of the most beautiful sunsets on the west coast of Italy, is closer to reality than one can imagine.
Sardinia is fighting depopulation on a generally overpopulated planet by offering people up to $15,000 to move there! In order to cope with the declining population and weak economy, the government of Sardinia has allocated 44 million dollars to be distributed to those willing to move to this idyllic island. Calabria, another small island in southern Italy, has offered up to $33,000 to people willing to move to some of the most rural villages to reverse the region's population decline.
If your dream is to live in Sardinia, you must know that this offer naturally has some prerequisites. To receive the maximum amount of $15,000, applicants must be willing to move to and live in a rural municipality with a population of less than 3,000. The government will not fund your dream of an Italian vacation home and wants you to invest in the country for the long term. The money must be spent only on the purchase and renovation of a house in Sardinia, with immediate residence registration in Sardinia within 18 months of arrival.
"Thanks to the contributions for the first houses, Sardinia becomes a fertile ground for those who will move there or decide to build a family. There can be no growth without a real improvement of the territories, the interior and the most vulnerable areas, which must go through new policies for their resettlement. For some, the idea of living in a town in Sardinia with less than 3,000 inhabitants with an additional bonus of $15,000 is a dream life," said the president of Sardinia, Cristian Solinas.
