Provide a summary of the project or program:
           NGO funds would be used to purchase and repair a building to house ECOA's Senior Center. Currently, the senior center is located in an Elder Housing apartment complex. The location limits the types of activities that can be provided for the senior of Evangeline Parish. The location also limits the involvement of the seniors of the parish. Many seniors who do not reside in the apartment complex, do not feel comfortable participating in events due to the location.

          Salaries. . . . . . . . . . . . . $0
          Professional Services. . . $0

Does your organization have any outstanding audit issues or findings?  No

What is the entity's public purpose, sought to be achieved through the use of state monies?
          Evangeline Council on Aging provides services to the elderly of Evangeline Parish. By moving the senior center to a neutral location, we feel that we could better serve the citizens of the parish.

What are the goals and objectives for achieving such purpose?
          Currently, our schedule of activities has to revolve around the schedule of the elderly apartment complex. By having our own facility, we would be able to have more flexibility to be able to provide activities that would better suite our clients.

What is the proposed length of time estimated by the entity to accomplish the purpose?
           6 months to a year
