Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $360,000)

The goal of the Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) Program is to support and enhance State efforts, in cooperation with local jurisdictions, to enforce laws prohibiting the sale of alcoholic beverages, or the consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors. For the purpose of the program, minors are defined as individuals under 21 years of age.

The State of Oregon plans to provide program funding to support underage drinking enforcement efforts throughout the State by implementing the following activities: implementation of a community grants project that focuses on high risk communities utilizing best practice strategies that may include, but not be limited to, minor decoy/compliance check activities, controlled party dispersal operations, shoulder tap programs, and retailer/community education; training and technical assistance for the Friendly PEERsuasion Program, which focuses on effective interventions in dealing with underage drinking by girls; and funding to implement a pilot project on targeted social norms marketing as it pertains to underage consumption of alcohol.
