STATE PERFORMANCE & BEST PRACTICES for the Prevention and Reduction of Underage Drinking

About This Resource

The State Performance and Best Practices is required by the Sober Truth on Preventing (STOP) Underage Drinking Act (Pub. L. 109-422), which was enacted by Congress in 2006 and reauthorized in December 2016 as part of the 21st Century Cures Act (Pub. L. 114-255). The STOP Act directs the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), working with the Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage Drinking (ICCPUD), to develop a set of performance measures for evaluating the states’ use of best practices in preventing underage drinking, and to consider a set of enumerated categories in doing so. The STOP Act also requires an annual report on each state's performance in enacting, enforcing, and creating laws, regulations, and programs to prevent or reduce underage drinking.
