Requested Agenda Title:


Budget Adjustment: Health Department’s Request to Recognize a New $66,950 Grant for the Eliminating Alcohol Sales to Youth Program



Requested Agenda Item Description: Utah State Substance Abuse and Mental Health (DSAMH) provides funding through this grant Eliminating Alcohol Sales to Youth (EASY) to support law enforcement's needs in the areas of education and technical assistance; and compliance checks. This funding will be used to update current trainings for law enforcement and the youth hired by law enforcement agencies to conduct the compliance checks. This will include updating training videos/materials and training opportunities for law enforcement. We will also create a campaign to educate retailers about the harms of selling to underaged youth through advertisements. 

We have partnered with Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the Department of Alcoholic Beverage control, State of Utah Dept. of Public Safety, Bear River Health Department, and Utah Highway Safety for this project. These partnerships plus the normal EASY prevention block grant allocation will help sustain the program after the one-time funding has been spent. 

This grant period is from July 2021 through June 2022 with the obligation thru June 2023.
