Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $356,400)

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 goals are to create a territory-wide task force of local law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies to target establishments suspected of a pattern of violations of the Virgin Islands Code governing the sale and consumption of alcohol by minors, to publicly advertise programs and outreach programs to educate establishments about statutory prohibitions and sanctions and to fund innovative programs to prevent and combat underage drinking.
