Pointe Coupee has 5,093 citizens that are 60 years of age or older; which is 22.3% of the population. With a staff of 22, we service an average of 1,268 unduplicated participants annually. An increase in funding is funding is anticipated in order to keep up with inflation while maintaining current levels of service and possibly increase services to reach individuals on the waiting list. We currently have 30 eligible participants on our waiting list and anticipant this number to increase as the elderly population continues to grow. These additional funds would be used to support all existing programs, so that we would not have to cut any of these necessary programs.

What is the entity's public purpose, sought to be achieved through the use of state monies?
          The purpose of the Pointe Coupee Council on Aging is to improve the quality and availability of services for the citizens 60 years of age and older in Pointe Coupee Parish by simulating public interest and awareness of the issues affecting the aging citizens. We help maintain the nutritional, physical and emotional well being of this population by providing these much needed serives.
