In less than two years each American will be surveyed for the U.S. Census and Rhode Island would really like it if you moved there and become a resident in time for them.  You see, part of the Census determines the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives. Because of its size, Rhode Island has only two House seats and due to its stagnant population, they're at risk of losing one.  So a state representative is looking pay families to move and pick up residency, a total of 30,000 new residents. To qualify, you must have a family of at least three with a household income of $100,000 per year or more and in exchange, families can receive $833.33 per month up to $10,000 for relocating to Rhode Island. The Qualified Family Migration to Rhode Island Act is under review and could be voted on later this year.
