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 Nevada Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws project is developed addressing the required performance measures, taking into consideration the need to collaborate with SAMHSA's State Prevention Framework project operating in the same communities, under the same prevention coalitions. This resulted in a comprehensive plan specific to each community, while ensuring consistency in the underage drinking prevention message statewide. Seventeen local law enforcement jurisdictions are supported by EUDL funds, awarded to the local prevention coalitions who assist with the development of the selection of law enforcement EUDL strategies in their jurisdictions. Coalitions enhance the effects of operations through the provision of server training, and reward projects, as well as ensuring media coverage of law enforcement and community prevention events.
