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 District of Columbia's Justice Grants Administration plans to provide program funding to support youth and statewide task forces and innovative/collaborative programs. Specifically, FY 2011 funds will support the following activities: compliance checks, Photo Voice Images, Vendor Education, Speaker's Slam Performances, focus groups, peer feedback messages, and a EUDL Youth Summit. Also, the District will continue its partnership with the DC Prevention Network (DCPN) to support best practices, innovative and collaborative new/existing projects to prevent and combat underage drinking. The DCPN is comprised of the following agencies and organizations: Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA), Metropolitan Police Department (MPD); the National Capital Coalition to Prevent Underage Drinking (NCCPUD), Bridging Resources in the Community (BRIC); Metro Teen AIDS; Alliance of Concerned Men; Public Charter School Center for Student Support; and the University of Maryland. All EUDL grant recipients will be required to participate in the DCPN as a condition of their grant award. NCA/NCF
