If you’re going to work from home this winter, you might as well do it from the United States’ most beautiful and relaxing state. Hawaii is encouraging out-of-state remote workers to relocate by offering a free round-trip ticket to Honolulu, as well as discounts on month-to-month accommodations, flights, restaurants, and other attractions.
Applications to the “Movers and Shakas” program must be filled out by December 15, and 50 winners will be chosen for the first phase. The winners must agree to move within one month of their selection. After phase one, applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, and the program may even expand to neighboring islands pending its success.
In return, participants will be asked to join the Pledge To Our Keiki program, where they pledge to contribute their skills and expertise to improving local communities and businesses, as well as volunteering at a Hawaiian nonprofit several hours a week.
