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 State of New Hampshire's Department of Justice will continue to focus on collaboration between the ten sheriff's offices and the towns and cities within each jurisdiction to target adults who provide alcohol to minors, to increase training on intervention and enforcement, and to educate youth on the possible consequences of underage use of alcohol. Protocols have been developed by the Liquor Commission Bureau of Enforcement on the use of underage buyers that must be followed by all subgrantees. The "Buyer Beware" program will continue to target adult buyers/providers of alcohol for youth. A new campaign will begin this year to bring attention to the numerous websites that provide fake IDs to youth to educate the public on this problem. NCA/NCF
