Topping the list is North Platte, Nebraska, where newcomers looking for work can apply for grants of $10,000.
Hamilton, Ohio is offering scholarships of up to $5,000, which can be used to pay off student loans.
St. Clair County, Michigan is giving young people who moved away $15,000 in grants to return.
