Celebrate the holidays responsibly. The ILCC is committed to raising awareness about the negative consequences of underage drinking. Adults, it's NOT safer to provide alcohol to youth or allow #underagedrinking in your home! Check out our Social Host Law in Illinois Webinar https://youtu.be/Db4A2YgjpRs

Studies indicate that social host laws are among the most effective and recommended ways to reduce underage drinking. Social host liability laws hold individuals who knowingly provide or allow the use of alcohol by minors or intoxicated adults liable for resulting property damage, injury, death or violation fines. https://www.prevention.org/

Tips for Individuals in Recovery during the Holiday Season...

• Put your recovery/sobriety first.
• Surround yourself with others in recovery, especially before or after stressful events.
• If you are in a 12 Step group, go to more meetings during the holidays and know that there are virtual support groups available. Though gathering in groups has become more difficult during the pandemic, support groups, like SMART Recovery, AA and NA are available online or in alternative settings.
• Practice self-care and an attitude of gratitude.
• Make a plan and share it with your support system Plans can include, an exit for stressful events, how to turn down a drink, or how to avoid a negative or hurtful family member. Consider attending stressful events virtually this year instead so that you have more control over who and what is around you.
• Remember - it is okay to say "no" to going somewhere that may threaten your recovery/sobriety.
• Ask for help and support when you need it.
• Remember that the days and weeks following the holiday season can be challenging, too. Have a plan in place to decompress after you celebrate.

Celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday responsibly. Adults, it's NOT safer to provide alcohol to youth or allow #underagedrinking in your home! It actually results in more drinking outside of the home and increased involvement in high-risk behaviors.

Licensees affected by #COVID - Register here http://bit.ly/ILBIGWebinar for the Business Interruption Grant (BIG) Program - Hospitality Industry Webinar Friday, November 6, 2020 at 1:00 pm This webinar is tailored to the #hospitality industry.

Join the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) and Accion Serving Illinois & Indiana for an Overview and Q&A on the Business Interruption Grant (BIG) Program.

The Business Interruption Grant (BIG) program is a $636 million program developed by Governor Pritzker and the Illinois General Assembly to provide economic relief for small businesses hit hardest by COVID-19. BIG leverages federal funding provided by the CARES Act to help offset COVID-19 related losses for Illinois small businesses.

BIG is the largest program of its kind in the nation – leveraging federal CARES Act funds to establish economic recovery programs: over $270 million for small businesses, and another $270 million exclusively for childcare providers, administered jointly by DCEO and IDHS.

Funding may be used to help businesses with working capital expenses, including payroll costs; rent; utilities; and other operational costs as defined in the eligible cost list found on DCEO's website.

Full details on the big program are available here: https://www2.illinois.gov/dceo/smallbizassistance/pages/c19disadvantagedbusgrants.aspx
