Any city in Alaska, U.S.

This area is known to be a less desirable place to move based on the harsh weather conditions for most of the year throughout the state as well as the remoteness of most of its real estate. So, the state legislature came up with an incentive program in 1976 called the Permanent Fund Reserve. It allows anyone who resides there for at least one year to receive a rebate for living there. The amount that has been given to each resident over the years has varied depending upon the state’s fund reserve, but the average payout to each resident is approximately $1250 each year with the largest payout in 2008 of $3,270 per resident. The catch is that you must only claim residency in Alaska and no other state.
