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.

Since receiving OJJDP funding in 1998, the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) has implemented a comprehensive underage drinking prevention program designed to help community organization, colleges, law enforcement, schools and retailers find ways of preventing those under 21 from having access to alcohol. Our enforcement projects, such as the Underage Buyer (UB) program and Targeted Enforcement, allows the State to monitor and prosecute retailers and other persons who supply alcohol to youth, while also focusing on those program areas generated through complaints; grants program for colleges, community organizations, local and rural law enforcement agencies provide funding to conduct educational and enforcement programs targeting people of all ages; the State's licensee programs such as RSVP (Responsible Sellers / Servers: Virginia's Program) and MART (Manager Alcohol Responsibility Training) provide information on Virginia's alcohol laws to sellers and servers of alcohol; and Virginia's trainings give people the opportunity to learn more about how to form community coalitions, evaluate their own underage drinking programs, and conduct proper party dispersal techniques.
