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

If 'Yes' is your organization working with the appropriate governmental agencies to resolve those issues or findings?
          

What is the entity's public purpose, sought to be achieved through the use of state monies?
          The purpose to be achieved through the public programs of East Feliciana Council on Aging is to continue to serve the needs of the seniors 60 years of age 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 Services, Information and Assistance and Recreation. The Council acts in an advisory capacity for the elderly citizens of East Feliciana Parish. The Council provided 39,524 units of service during the last contract year. Unlike some parishes we have no mileage or dedicated funding coming directly from the city parish.

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. To be able to provide meals and remove seniors from this long waiting list would be a major accomplishment.

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