Since 1998, the Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) Program's training and technical assistance initiative has supported state and local efforts to prohibit the sale of alcoholic beverages to minors and the purchase and consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors, defined as persons under 21 years old. The successful applicant will provide training and technical assistance support to state and local EUDL programs and other entities, as directed by Congress or the Office of Justice Programs. This program is authorized by the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 2002, 42 U.S.C. 5665-5667 and the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2009, Pub. L. No. 111-8.

The Pacific Institute of Research and Evaluation (PIRE) will support the OJJDP Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) Program by providing increasingly effective training, technical assistance, and information sharing. The project will serve EUDL block grantees and Federal, State/Territory, and local agencies focusing on enforcement of underage drinking laws. Using experienced staff and consultants, PIRE will also serve parents, educators, criminal justice and health professionals, policymakers and youth, educating whole communities to better execute evidence-based enforcement and environmental strategies. A range of activities will include a 24-hour call center, a resource Web site, trainings for law enforcement, a National Conference and Leadership Institute, onsite strategic technical assistance, a webinar series, and four distance learning modules. PIRE will also distribute relevant research and programmatic best practices in print and electronic formats. PIRE uses a comprehensive database to document all GPRA-related training and technical assistance services provided and performs quarterly assessments of project impact toward building evidence-based practices and improved outcomes among EUDL grantees. In this way, PIRE supports EUDL objectives through quantitative and qualitative outcomes measurement, such as pre- and post-test knowledge gains for training and satisfaction surveys of technical assistance.

The Underage Drinking Enforcement Training Center (UDETC) serves as the sole National Center for evidence-based Technical Assistance and Training (TTA) whose purpose is to serve the Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) block and discretionary grantees and programs with a focus on enforcement of underage drinking laws. The UDETC is managed by the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation (PIRE) and provides a variety of evidence-based TTA and innovative technologies to support up to fifty states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories. The UDETC's services are personalized to support strengthening of task forces and collaborative linkages as well as developing the leadership capacity of EUDL coordinators. To achieve the project's goals and objectives, the UDETC offers cutting-edge educational learning practices such as training of trainers, distance learning courses, experiential exercises, tool kits, webinars, publications, onsite strategic technical assistance and other services. The Center's website resources and toll-free number have supported rural and hard-to-reach areas, and have been cost effective for grantees and others with limited funds and resources.

UDETC will provide TTA to support implementation of science-based strategies. Support will include financial assistance to the State Assessment, Strategic Planning and Implementation Initiatives' independent assessment team to complete their findings and reports. The UDETC will also serve parents, educators, justice system professionals, health professionals, policymakers, special focus populations and others. During this funding period the UDETC will enhance TTA by providing strategic assistance with development of long-term sustainability plans for their underage drinking efforts. Quantitative and qualitative measurement supporting objectives will include Success Stories, knowledge gains and training ratings, an online assessment of TTA outcomes, and other data collection methods to respond to OJJDP reporting requirements and TA requests.
