TABC Awards Grants

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) recently awarded nine grants totaling $248,326 to Texas nonprofits, colleges, law enforcement and community coalitions for underage drinking prevention initiatives.

"Texas leads the nation in the number of alcohol-related traffic fatalities among 15- to 20-year-olds, and this age group remains the most difficult to reach with an anti-drinking message," said TABC Administrator Alan Steen.

Each project represents a well-planned and potentially successful underage drinking enforcement and prevention initiative.

"Thanks to this funding and strong community leadership, we have a better chance of reaching these young people to make them aware of potentially deadly consequences," Steen said.

Funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), Enforcement of Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) block grant.

TABC serves as the designated state administrator for EUDL grant funds and monitors each project to determine the effectiveness of funded efforts.
