Like a lot of places around the country, Quincy, Illinois, along the Mississippi River, is struggling to fill jobs.

The Workforce Relocation Assistance Program provides a rebate on property taxes or a rental lease to help bring more people to Quincy, and help address the labor shortage there. We were joined by Quincy's mayor and someone who recently relocated to the city.
