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 State of Iowa's Division of Criminal and Juvenile Justice Planning (CJJP) of the Iowa Department of Human Rights provides for a statewide distribution of the EUDL block grant funding through the Iowa Juvenile Justice/Youth Development Project. EUDL funding is combined with federal JABG and Formula funding and allocated to the eight District Juvenile Courts across the State. The Chief Juvenile Court Officers (Chief JCO) and their staff work with local law enforcement, community human services organizations, treatment providers and schools to plan, develop and provide programs for court involved youth and youth at risk for court intervention. EUDL funding provides for local contracts with law enforcement, schools and other community agencies to provide compliance/enforcement, education and prevention activities around the issue of the underage use of alcohol.
