Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $360,000)

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 State of Maryland plans to provide program funding to support underage drinking enforcement efforts throughout the State by implementing the following activities: Communities Mobilizing for Change on Alcohol (CMCA), Techniques of Alcohol Management (TAM) Training, Reducing the Availability of Alcohol to Minors (RAAM) Training, Cops in Shops, Compliance Checks, and a statewide campaign to reduce youth substance abuse through special events, marketing, and extensive collaboration among Maryland's youth-serving agencies.
