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.

Nevada's Department of Health and Human Services will award EUDL funds to seventeen local prevention coalitions, which will help with the selection of law enforcement strategies that best meet the needs of their community. Other activities supported by the coalition include: server training, reward projects, and ensuring media coverage of law enforcement and community prevention events. Law enforcement operations include: compliance checks, third party purchases, party patrols, special events control and fake identification intervention. NCA/NCF

OJJDP's State and Community Development Awards program was established to provide grants and cooperative agreements to organizations that OJJDP has selected for funds in prior years. This program has been authorized by an Act appropriating funds for the Department of Justice.

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 Nevada Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws project is developed to address the required Performance Measures, taking into consideration the need to collaborate with SAMHSA's State Prevention Framework project operating in the same communities with the same prevention coalitions. This has resulted in a comprehensive plan specific to each community, while ensuring consistency in the underage drinking prevention message statewide.

Seventeen local law enforcement jurisdictions are supported by EUDL funds, awarded to the local prevention coalitions, who assist with the development of law enforcement EUDL strategies in their jurisdictions. Coalitions will enhance the effects of operations through the provision of training, and reward projects, as well as ensuring media coverage of law enforcement and community prevention events. These funds will be used specifically to support the EUDL operations by Nevada's largest jurisdiction, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
