Here’s how the assistance works:
- Families with incomes at or below 100% of the federal poverty level will be responsible for only 10% of the costs associated with their ignition interlock device.
- Those earning between 101% and 200% of the federal poverty level contribute 25% towards the ignition interlock expenses.
- Customers with household incomes between 201% and 300% of the federal poverty mark are asked to pay 50% of the ignition interlock costs.
In cases where financial assistance is granted by the court, LifeSafer will receive the necessary documentation directly, and we will cover any outstanding amounts not paid by the customer.
