Another community in Italy is paying people to move there, but this time it’s not a deserted village of crumbling houses. The northern Italian city of Mantua, home to regal palaces and ancient churches, is looking for new residents. The city council has announced it will pay people who relocate to Mantua a monthly contribution of €150 ($160). Here’s how to apply and who is eligible for the grant.

Mantua, in Italy’s Lombardy region, is luring new residents with cash incentives from September this year. The municipality will pay €150 ($160) to those who move to the city for at least a year. There is a total of €400,000 available in grants from the government, with €200,000 allocated from September 2023 and €200,000 more next year. This is enough to finance 100 applications, the council said.
