MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission has been awarded a grant to combat underage drinking across the state.

The $125,000 grant from the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) will target anyone who sells to minors and those who are underage and try to purchase alcohol.

The initiative will also increase compliance in communities across the state with high alcohol-related traffic fatalities. THSO says alcohol-impaired driving fatalities for both 2019 and 2020 were up across the state from previous years.
