In fiscal year 2003, a total of $25 million was awarded as block and discretionary grants in the following manner: Funds were dispersed in the amount of $360,000 to each State and the District of Columbia in block grants to support and enhance efforts by States, in cooperation with local jurisdictions, to prohibit the sale of alcoholic beverages to, or consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors. Funds in the amount of $6,640,000 were dispersed to support discretionary program activities in local jurisdictions, training and technical assistance to all States and a national evaluation. To support local discretionary programming activity, funds were competitively awarded to State agencies receiving block grants. The local programs implement the comprehensive approach to curtailing access and consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors, including the enforcement of laws pertaining to underage alcohol purchase, possession, and use. The local discretionary programs initiated with fiscal year 2003 funds will participate in a three-year community trials evaluation initiative. Funds to support training and technical assistance and the national evaluation supplemented on-going efforts by the existing grantees. For purposes of this initiative, minors are defined as individuals under 21 years of age. These funds cannot be used to supplant existing programs and activities (Supplanting means to deliberately reduce State or local funds because of the existence of Federal funds).
