Did you know that there are towns in America that are offering big bucks to get you to move to their city? But, there's a bit of a catch.

Some states have options, but unfortunately, in Louisiana, there is only one municipality that has money waiting for you to "make the move."

The one city in Louisiana that will pay you to relocate there.
