I've lived within the same seven-mile radius on a tiny island on the shores of the Hudson River my entire life. But after three decades of living in Manhattan, I was itching to move and stop shelling out thousands of dollars each month to rent out a cramped one-bedroom apartment. Which is why, one sunny April day in 2019, I found myself searching for an apartment in Tulsa, Oklahoma.In 2018, the George Kaiser Family Foundation launched Tulsa Remote, a program for people who can do their jobs from anywhere in the country.The foundation offers applicants $10,000 to move to Tulsa for a year, along with cool perks like apartment specials, a swanky coworking space, lunch-and-learn lectures, and bowling nights. After initially welcoming members in cohorts, the program shifted to rolling applications, with no limit on the number of members accepted.
