ICCPUD Community Engagement

What is ICCPUD Community Engagement?

Alcohol remains the number one substance used and misused by young people.  Therefore, in 2006, Congress enacted the Sober Truth on Preventing Underage Drinking (STOP) Act which established the Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage Drinking (ICCPUD).  The STOP Act was reauthorized in 2016 as part of the 21st Century Cures Act.

Because most of the effort to reduce underage drinking is done at the state and local levels, Congress tasked ICCPUD to regularly seek the input of and consult with the nationwide community of prevention experts, state and local government workers, nonprofit staff and volunteers, parents, caregivers, and others who are working hard to reduce underage drinking.  To carry out this responsibility, ICCPUD will be holding quarterly webcasts to provide data and resources, seek input, and exchange ideas.

ICCPUD has designed this Community Engagement page as a comprehensive resource for people to easily access relevant information about their states.  This page will list upcoming events and webcasts, provide helpful resources, host previous webcasts, and provide access to national and state resources.
