Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $500,000)

OJJDP FY 09 Demonstration Programs Division Grants was established to provide grants, cooperative agreements and other assistance to organizations designated by OJJDP, as authorized by the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 2002 (42 U.S.C. Sections 5601 et seq.) and statutes appropriating funds for juvenile justice programs.

Using a quasi-experimental research design, ICF Incorporated will evaluate whether the interventions implemented by the FY 2009 EUDL/USAF partnership grantees had an impact on the several core outcomes, including the rate of Driving under the Influence (DUI), alcohol-related traffic crashes, and other alcohol-related crimes by drawing comparisons from out-year data at the demonstration sites to baseline data and by comparing the demonstration sites to relevant matched comparison communities. The approach involves leveraging ICF Incorporated's existing data collection system to gather process and outcome data from the two communities and their comparison sites. Specifically, ICF Incorporated will collect data from the EUDL/USAF grantees using four primary data sources: 1) interviews with grantees; 2) metrics on key outcomes provided by grantees and collected via our common measures reporting system; 3) Air Force Community Assessment survey data; and 4) administrative data collecting by the Air Force Substance Use Assessment Tool. In addition to these four sources, ICF Incorporated proposes to conduct anonymous on-line surveys of underage active duty Air Force members at 3 different points in time (immediately prior to the interventions, after most interventions have been completed, and within one year of the cessation of the EUDL program) to ask respondents in the communities about their alcohol usage and associated alcohol-related misconducts, if any.
