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 primary goal of the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety's (GOHS) Fiscal Year 2011 Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) program is to aggressively enforce and educate Arizona's liquor laws relating to youth alcohol possession, consumption and unlawful sales of alcoholic products to youth. GOHS's FY 2011 EUDL proposal has two components: (1) Enforcement - GOHS will coordinate with law enforcement agencies from across the State to coordinate high visibility enforcement campaigns directed at underage purchase possession and consumption; as well as ensuring that businesses that sell and serve alcoholic products are complying with Arizona's liquor laws. EUDL funding will provide these agencies with overtime funds to coordinate effective youth alcohol enforcement programs. (2) Education - GOHS will continue a large variety of state-wide underage drinking prevention campaigns.

Strategies to help Arizona reach its goals and objectives include: (1) high visibility enforcement - expansion of compliance check programs; (2) training related to programs; (3) expand and publicize state-wide and local media campaigns; and (4) support innovative prevention programs. Arizona has a wealth of resources to help measure the outcomes of implementing the programs enumerated above, including, the Arizona Youth Survey, the Arizona Institutions of Higher Education Network Survey, and the Arizona Crash Facts and statistical data provided by participating agencies.
