About the Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage Drinking

The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2004 directed the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to establish the Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage Drinking and to issue an annual report summarizing all federal agency activities related to preventing underage alcohol use. HHS made Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage Drinking (ICCPUD) a standing committee to provide ongoing, high-level leadership on this issue and to serve as a mechanism for coordinating federal efforts aimed at preventing and reducing underage drinking.

Fifteen federal agencies are members of ICCPUD; the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, an agency within HHS, serves as the lead agency.
