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 purpose of the 'Texas Enforcing the Underage Drinking Laws 2010 Block Grant' (EUDL 10) is to reduce underage alcohol consumption through local prevention and enforcement efforts by law enforcement, educational institutions and other nonprofit organizations. Through support from the TABC EUDL Statewide Taskforce, the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) will award contracts with EUDL 2010 funds for various projects in underage drinking law enforcement operations, alcohol free sponsored youth events and prevention and enforcement programs that focus on the reduction of underage drinking amongst our youth. TABC will also provide support for these efforts through its EUDL 2010 Campaign Toolkit such as promotional/educational (PI&E) materials and training with assistance from the Underage Drinking Enforcement Training Center (UDETC).
