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. 


Upcoming Events

Be on the lookout for the first SAMHSA online webinar on the STOP Act and underage drinking prevention coming later in 2019. The first webinar will cover the 2018 Report to Congress on the Prevention and Reduction of Underage Drinking, the 2018 State Performance and Best Practices, and the 2018 State Reports.

These webinars on underage drinking and the STOP Act will be held to provide data and resources, seek input, and exchange ideas. The participants will consist of important stakeholders in the work of the STOP Act in underage drinking prevention: Single State Agency directors; National Prevention Network representatives; STOP Act State Survey respondents; STOP Act grantees; community stakeholders in the “Talk. They Hear You” national media campaign; and other community-based prevention leaders and professionals.

National and Federal Resources

The ICCPUD is comprised of 15 federal agencies that coordinate the federal approach to prevent underage drinking. These agencies, together with other federal and national partners, have published resources for communities and researchers to use in the effort to prevent underage drinking.
