What is the entity's public purpose, sought to be achieved through the use of state monies?
          The purpose is to continue to serve seniors 60 years and older. The Council on Aging is a nonprofit corporation providing services to the elderly such as; Transportation, Home Delivered Meals, Congregate Meals, Wellness, Emergency Response Units, Homemaker, Information & Assistance and Recreation. The Council acts in an advisory capacity for the elderly citizens of East Feliciana Parish. Last year the COA provided 42,022 units of service to our elderly. Unlike some parishes we have no mileage to support elderly programs.

What are the goals and objectives for achieving such purpose?
          Our Mission is to assist the elderly in achieving independent, meaningful lives in their own homes and communities as long as possible and to shorten this waiting list by providing meals to needy senior citizens.

What is the proposed length of time estimated by the entity to accomplish the purpose?
           1 year
