In 2006, Congress passed the STOP Act (Sober Truth on Preventing Underage Drinking) to focus federal attention on the problem of underage drinking, with the first STOP Act grants being awarded to federally supported Drug Free Community Coalitions (DFC) in 2008. NCPC was among the first group of STOP Act grantees with funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP). NCPC project efforts focused on developing underage drinking prevention strategies for Hispanic populations in the region.
