(Meredith) -- Do you work from home? Tulsa is offering $10,000 to entrepreneurs and those who work remotely to move to the city and stay at least one year. 

According to the Washington Post, if you agree to stay for a year, as a worker you will receive cash that includes rent subsidies and stipends.

The aim of this initiative is to bring those living in large metropolitan cities the opportunity to settle in smaller cities.

The program, Tulsa Remote, sponsored by the George Kaiser Family Foundation, has received more than 6,000 applications since the website for the program went live earlier this month, Ken Levit told the Washington Post. 

According to the Bureau of Labor Department statistics, Tulsa currently has an unemployment rate of 3 percent.
