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 Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services (ODADAS) is the designated State Agency to administer the Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws Program in Ohio. The implementation of the EUDL initiative in Ohio will continue through the statewide agency Drug-Free Action Alliance. ODADAS will continue to address social hosting and to increase the use of environmental strategies. The agency will continue funding the public awareness campaign 'The Parents Who Host Lose the Most: Don't be a party to teenage drinking.' In addition, social hosting will be addressed by the continuation of two projects. One project targets Ohio's urban communities and the second targets college students. NCA/NCF
