Financial Incentives

The financial incentives of Ascend WV are simple: We will pay you $12,000 to live your best life in West Virginia.


Move your remote work to West Virginia and receive $12,000 while living in Almost Heaven. Spend your money on the things that you love or lay down some roots, all while experiencing everything that West Virginia has to offer.


Let's Run the Numbers

Payments for the $12,000 financial incentive will begin after your first month in the Ascend WV program and continue over the course of two years. In equal monthly payments, you will receive the first $10,000 over the course of your first year in Almost Heaven. The final $2,000 will be yours at the end of your second year in the Ascend WV program.

To make things easy, payment checks will be distributed in person at the coworking space.
