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.
Michigan's EUDL program is administered by the Office of Highway Safety Planning (OHSP), a division of the Michigan State Police. OHSP has a long-standing commitment of eliminating underage drinking and partners with other State agencies, law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, and prevention and treatment specialists to best administer this program. Working in cooperation with these partners, OHSP uses a multi-dimensional approach of prevention, education, enforcement, adjudication, and treatment in hopes of establishing long-lasting, positive changes and perceptions about underage drinking.
