Who is eligible to apply...
To receive a Block Grant, Governors and the Mayor of the District of Columbia designated an agency to serve as the point of contact to apply for, receive, and administer the targeted grant funds. The designated State agencies may apply to receive a Discretionary Grant. Their applications must detail a comprehensive approach to curtailing access and consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors, including the enforcement of underage drinking laws and how that approach will be implemented by State-selected local communities. States are encouraged to link with ongoing public and private efforts (including those of foundations and national organizations). Training and technical assistance and national evaluation funds were made available through a separate application process.
Each applicant applying for funds must submit a completed application, including signed assurances that it will comply with administrative requirements.
