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.
New York's Enforcing the Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) Program strives to increase statewide capacity for enforcement and prevention efforts designed to prevent and eliminate youth alcohol access. For the purposes of this solicitation, the underage target population is defined as youth under the age of 21. The goals and objectives of the EUDL program will be achieved through prevention, community and law enforcement partnerships that have been selected for sub grant awards through a competitive request for proposals (RFP). Progress accomplished toward the goals and objectives will be measured primarily through the changes in compliance rates of underage alcohol sales and other enforcement operations reported by law enforcement. Additional outcome measures will be captured by pre- and post-test data from law enforcement training projects as well as applicable prevention media activities conducted during a given report period that will capture the resulting impact on community norms and behaviors.
