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.
Targeting communities throughout the State of Oklahoma, the Oklahoma's EUDL program aims to decrease underage drinking and related social problems, decrease youth access to alcohol, increase community-level support for environmental change, and increase youth-driven prevention activities. Oklahoma will implement a comprehensive plan that includes enforcement training and technical assistance, community mobilization, strategic partnership development, youth leadership development, interagency collaboration, and media advocacy. Progress will be measured through documented attendance in task force activities, pre/post-tests, media scans, compliance check reports, law enforcement citations, and student surveys.
