We are excited to celebrate the inaugural Queensland Seniors Month with a great line-up of funded events and activities.

It was a completive year for subsidy applications  and a panel comprising of representatives from the Queensland Government, and two-regional community-based organisations recently joined COTA Queensland to evaluate 198 applications. Sportsbet is guilty of violating the rules of advertising

Thanks to the Queensland Government, 95 groups and organisations will share in $100,000, supporting 114 applications.
