About Ketchikan

Often referred to as Alaska’s “first city” due to its location as the southernmost entrance to Alaska's Inside Passage, Ketchikan is known for its breathtaking wilderness, its rich Alaska native culture and history, and an abundance of salmon. For remote workers and other tech-based entrepreneurs, Ketchikan represents a unique opportunity to live a truly connected lifestyle unlike any other city. Benefits of moving to the area are plentiful and include a permanent fund dividend. Every year, each Alaska resident will receive money from the Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend. The amount varies each year, but can be as high as $2,000 per person. Additionally, Alaska is one of only 9 states with no income tax and one of 5 states with no state sales tax. Ketchikan also offers gigabit fiber optic home internet, and accepted applicants can receive up to 3 months free. Finalists for the program may be invited to visit Ketchikan for a week-long “workation” where they will experience the community, culture, explore co-working spaces, and learn more about “the basics” that Ketchikan has to offer such as education, healthcare, technology, and housing.
