Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $300,000)

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 Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs continues to provide resources to courts, law enforcement, and prosecutors to address the problem of underage drinking, and presents public advertising campaigns targeting youth under age 21 and potential sellers concerning the prohibitions pertaining to consuming and selling alcohol. Subgrantees include the Alabama ABC Board, Alabama MADD, and Alabama SADD, whose programs serve youth and their parents when the youth are arrested for underage drinking. The ABC Board's Enforcement Division will conduct compliance checks with the goal of achieving a 10% or less non-compliance rate, increase investigative enforcement through inspections of licensed on-premises and off-premises locations, and identify cases referred to juvenile court. Alabama MADD will implement the "Class Pack" and the "Power of Parents: It's Your Influence" programs targeting youth under age 21 and their parents, and the roll call briefings for law enforcement officers. Alabama SADD will provide the State's conference for SADD chapters, provide campaign-related assistance to local SADD chapters to assess current and to develop future activities, and conduct Statewide campaigns and leadership meetings to assess activities and develop programs targeting destructive decisions. Achievement of goals and objectives will be measured by the number of youth coming into contact with the justice system due to underage drinking. NCA/NCF
