"Ellsworth, population of 2,900, is one of many communities throughout the Great Plains looking to reverse decades of population decline by offering free parcels of land. Not only that, they're also giving down payment assistance, tax rebates, breaks for small business and even the promise of high-speed Internet access.

In Ellsworth County, for example, there are 23 lots available for free to individuals, assuming they're pre-qualified to build a house that is at least 1,000 square feet and agree to build a house on the land within two years time."
