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 South Carolina plans to provide program funding to support underage drinking enforcement efforts throughout the State by funding statewide taskforces called Alcohol Enforcement Teams (AET). Each of the sixteen AETs are responsible for the following activities: Implementation of alcohol compliance checks and additional evidence-based strategies, active community outreach around underage drinking awareness and education, offering a state-approved merchant education curriculum for voluntary and court-mandated clerks and managers, and participation in evaluation/reporting requirements.
