Starting in June 2019, remote workers in the tech industry may be eligible to receive up to $10,000 to live in-and work from-The Shoals, an area that includes Colbert and Lauderdale counties in Northwest Alabama. The Shoals area boasts many amenities, including close proximity to the Tennessee River, recreational areas like the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, diverse dining and shopping experiences, and a thriving music scene. But the cherry on top is the area's low cost of living.
Applicants must be 18 or older, eligible to work in the U.S. and be employed outside The Shoals as either full-time employees or independent contractors. Individuals selected for the program must relocate to The Shoals within six months. Candidates will begin the application process on the Remote Shoals website. A committee assemble by SEDA and the Shoals Chamber will then select candidates to move through two additional rounds of qualification.
The Shoals Research Airpark Spec Building is a recent constructed 100,000 sq. ft. speculative facility now available for industry. The building is expandable to 150,000 sq. ft. and can be built-out to tenant specifications.
This property is conveniently located directly adjacent to Northwest Shoals Regional Airport. It is located 3,000 feet from Main Line Rail and 8 miles from the Port of Florence. US Highway 72 Alt is located 3 miles away.
The Shoals Economic Development Authority recently conducted a third-party extensive labor force analysis and overall assessment of The Shoals. The findings indicate many positive trends when compared to other benchmark geographies of similar size.
