Downtown Lafayette next up for stipends to recruit remote workers
Purdue Research Foundation reaches into downtown Lafayette to spread remote worker recruiting tool. Plus, no takers on rail relocation land for housing ... yet.
Thanks to the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette, sponsor of today’s edition. The museum is preparing for the return of Art on the Wabash, a juried art fair Sunday, Sept. 25, in West Lafayette’s Tapawingo Park. Admission is free. Check the details below.
A program used to recruit people with remote jobs to West Lafayette will expand into Lafayette, under an agreement approved Thursday between Purdue Research Foundation and the Lafayette Redevelopment Commission.
Similar to the Work from Purdue program piloted a year ago and then re-upped by PRF and West Lafayette in the spring, remote workers with $50,000-plus incomes open to moving to downtown Lafayette and surrounding neighborhoods could get up to $9,000 in moving expenses and other perks.
