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 Oregon Health Authority, Addictions & Mental Health Division, plans to provide program funding to support underage drinking enforcement efforts throughout the State by implementing the following activities: implementation of a community grants project that focuses on high risk communities utilizing best practice strategies that may include, but not be limited to, minor decoy/compliance check activities, controlled party dispersal operations, shoulder tap programs, and retailer/community education. The FY 2011 EUDL Project will build upon the successes of the past and implement additional strategies to further reduce underage drinking rates. Target populations will include youth and parents, as well as alcohol retailers and other social sources of alcohol for minors. Tribal and Community grants focusing on law enforcement activities and a positive community norms project will highlight the strategies to be used with the FY 2011 EUDL funds. Oregon will also pursue a college/university partnership, where campus security personnel will be trained in controlled party dispersal techniques for effective dispersal of campus parties. NCA/NCF

Oregon's Department of Human Services, Office of Mental Health and Addiction Services will use FY 2013 State and Community Development Division (SCD) Invited Awards to support the statewide "Positive Community Norms" (PCN) mORe media campaign. Statewide mORe campaign messages will be adapted and utilized at the local level. The campaign will use funds for print media, online web banners, and other media outlets to publicize the message that most youth in Oregon do not drink on a regular basis, most youth do not binge drink, and most youth are making healthy choices. Oregon is shifting the message to a positive community norms message, helping to influence the decisions of those who are contemplating whether or not to drink, and to reinforce the positive message for those that chose not to drink.
