The COVID-19 pandemic has meant fewer tourists visiting Hawaii.

So officials in the state are trying to attract remote workers instead by offering home offices with beach views.

It's a campaign they're calling "Movers and Shakas," a reference to the Hawaiian term "hang loose."

The first 50 applicants approved will get a free round trip ticket to Hawaii.

People accepted to the program will be eligible for other deals on lodging and office space, but will have to commit to helping a local nonprofit weekly.

Applicants will also have to pledge a commitment to respect and protect the life, lands and waters of Hawaii.
