(Harrisburg) -- State grants are on the way to various organizations with the goal of combating drinking problems statewide. 

The PA Liquor Control Board will award nearly 2-point-3 million dollars in grants to 66 recipients including schools, organizations, municipalities, colleges and universities through the Alcohol Education Grant Program.

The PLCB's Shawn Kelly says the goal is to reverse the rising trends in underage and irresponsible drinking:

"Recent studies that have been conducted in Pennsylvania show these trends are on the rise and it's something that the PLCB takes very seriously.  This grant program will be used to help address some of those concerns statewide," he said.  

40 of grants will fund community law enforcement efforts for underage patrols, training and equipment.
