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.
Ohio will continue to utilize EUDL funding to support the successful public awareness campaign, "Parent Who Host Lose the Most: Don't be a Party to Teenage Drinking," through the statewide agency Drug-Free Action Alliance. In addition, the EUDL task force and project staff will continue to support the efforts of the Statewide Prevention Coalition Association to address issues related to responsible beverage service throughout the State and to support coalitions in their efforts to effectively partner with law enforcement at the local level.
