The North Dakota Department of Human Services, Division of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, will utilize the FY 2011 EUDL funds to address the problem of underage drinking in North Dakota as identified through State prevention strategic planning. The overall goal for EUDL funding is to enforce North Dakota State laws prohibiting the sale of alcoholic beverages to minors and to prevent the purchase and/or consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors throughout the State. Five primary goals for funding include: 1) support of youth engagement in the North Dakota Youth Advisory Council; 2) enforcement activities such as underage drinking enforcement and compliance checks; 3) public advertising campaigns such as the First Lady's Parenting for Prevention campaign and public awareness campaigns; 4) identification and implementation of an innovative early intervention program for youth at risk; and 5) implementation of environmental prevention strategies.
