Remote workers get $5k (and a whole lot more) to move to Muncie

The place that inspired NBC’s popular “Parks & Recreation” is recruiting remote workers to their very real, very inimitable Midwest college town. Muncie’s relocation incentive includes $5k and a host of perks provided by Ball State University. More than that, Muncie residents enjoy a surprising array of accessible big city amenities - a night out at the ballet or a trip to the Children’s Museum can be planned same day. And it’s affordable. And there’s parking. We think the show writers missed a few things.
