The state's sixth-largest city, Mitchell (population 15,656), has launched a new program that could put as much as $1,000 in your bank account if you move there.

Move to Mitchell

It's all part of the Mitchell Area Development Corporation and Chamber of Commerce's effort to try and fill 600 job openings in the city.

Applications for the $1,000 relocation gift are being processed through the Move to Mitchell website.

There aren't a ton of restrictions to get the money but you must be relocating from out of South Dakota to qualify. You must also live and work full-time in the city.

The program is open to both renters and property owners.

Officials say that so far 17 new residents have taken advantage of the program.
