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.

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