Welcome Home, Tech Workers

Categories:

The Savannah Economic Development Authority has unveiled a new addition to their Creative Technology Incentive to draw workers into Savannah. The incentive will create new technology jobs and increased investment in Chatham County.

Now, qualified tech workers who move to Chatham County can receive a relocation reimbursement up to $2,000.

Previously, the incentive only applied to companies that relocate to Chatham County, but many tech companies shifted to remote work amid the pandemic. As a result, it’s no longer necessary to live in the city where you work.

SEDA believes that extending the incentive to individuals could attract employees from large companies to Savannah. The office could become a café table on Savannah’s historic cobblestone streets.

To qualify, applicants must have at least three years of verifiable experience. Secondly, they must relocate to Chatham County with a minimum one-year lease or purchase property. Thirdly, they must have resided in the county for 30 days before applying. Finally, they must provide receipts from their move, have a Georgia driver’s license and a Chatham County address.

A bustling coastal city rich in history, Savannah is regularly ranked as one of the best places to live in the US. Now, it could be one of the next up-and-coming centers of tech.

Interested candidates can learn more about the program and apply for the incentive here.
