Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $356,400)
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 New Hampshire Department of Justice's Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws grant program will subgrant with law enforcement statewide to include local, county and State agencies to reduce underage drinking in the State. This year, the agency will focus on collaborations between New Hampshire's ten county sheriffs' offices and the towns and cities within each jurisdiction. The goals are to target adult providers of alcohol, increase training opportunities in intervention and enforcement, and to educate youth regarding the physical, emotional and intellectual consequence of underage alcohol use.
