Remote Worker Incentive Program

Remote Shoals launched in June 2019 with a mission to recruit 10 remote workers to move to- and work from- The Shoals. After a successful first year, the program has been renewed and is now seeking 25 new remote workers to relocate to The Shoals.

The Shoals Economic Development Authority’s (SEDA) pilot program, which ran May 1, 2019 through April 30, 2020, recruited 10 remote workers to The Shoals. These remote workers bring with them a new annual payroll of almost $1.1 million, which does not include the wages of other members of their household. Remote Shoals residents are putting their wages into the Shoals economy by buying houses, supporting local businesses, etc.

John Whitney, a Remote Shoals resident, moved to The Shoals from Roseville, California. Whitney had visited The Shoals on business and was surprised at all the area had to offer. He was pleased to learn of the program that would allow him to work remotely from this community.

“After relocating earlier this year, I couldn’t be happier with my choice,” said Whitney on his relocation to The Shoals. “I don't hesitate to recommend to others that they come enjoy and support the area while experiencing the friendly people and vibrant culture of the Shoals. It’s a great place to be!”
