Tallahassee, Fla. -- Florida is trying to help homeless children make bigger strides in the classroom.
The state has awarded thousands of dollars to Leon County in funding for homeless youth education.
The Florida Department of Education awarded this school district a new grant to help kids like that live in our area.
The grant will pay up to $15,000 to seven different counties in the state.
Leon was chosen because, the DOE says kids will receive things like new bikes, washers and dryers, anything to help them accomplish their learning goals.
The DOE teamed up with Wells Fargo and the Florida Education Foundation to help out with this grant.
