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 Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections (IDJC) is the designated agency to administer the EUDL program. The IDJC will employ EUDL strategies that will focus in the areas of enforcement, education, and task force development projects. These projects intend to prevent and reduce underage drinking in Idaho by employing research-based strategies in a comprehensive fashion, addressing youth access, desire, and opportunities to drink alcohol. The EUDL funding will target local law enforcement and community coalitions, enabling them to address their local priorities through a mini-grant process. Law enforcement agencies will undertake special campaigns to reduce youth access to alcohol while community coalitions engage in prevention activities through community-based programs, media campaigns, or other evidence-based approaches. Funding will be directed to the Idaho State Police Bureau of Alcohol Beverage Control for training and compliance operations around the state, to the Idaho Regional Alcohol and Drug Awareness Resource (RADAR) Center to provide educational videos and materials on underage drinking for students and the public, the Idaho College Health Coalition to address underage drinking on Idaho campuses, and to the Community Coalitions of Idaho prevention network to support coalition development across the state.
The EUDL program focuses enforcement and prevention efforts at youth under the age of 21, their parents, and other adults. A new online tool developed by the Idaho Prevention and Treatment Research Workgroup will be used to monitor risk factor trends in communities. Idaho will continue using data sources such as the Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance, and other archival data to monitor outcomes.NCA/NCF
