HAWAII: What If I Can’t Afford My Ignition Interlock Device?

If you need an Ignition Interlock, you may need some financial assistance during your required period with the device.

Smart Start Hawaii offers an indigent program for those who qualify to help lessen the costs associated with an Ignition Interlock.

So, What Are My Discounts if I Qualify for the Hawaii Financial Assistance Program?

You will be eligible for an installation and monthly lease fee discount under the Hawaii financial assistance program. Although Smart Start’s Ignition Interlocks are less than $3 a day at normal price, we will be able to reduce your monthly fees and offer 50 percent off the installation cost at your appointment. Your regular fees will be any lockout, transfer and/or removal services.

About Smart Start Hawaii’s Financial Assistance Ignition Interlock Program

To qualify for Hawaii’s discounted Ignition Interlock program, you must be receiving Hawaii SNAP/EBT benefits. To prove this, you need to mail or fax a copy of your current benefits summary form for review and approval to Smart Start. Smart Start Hawaii’s corporate office will verify your documents with the local Department of Human Services (DHS) office. If approved, a Hawaii SNAP/EBT benefits summary form must be reviewed every year to qualify for the discount during your Ignition Interlock program.

Another resource where you can have your questions answered is with your monitoring authority. It’s always a good idea to ask them about your eligibility for financial assistance as well. In addition, they can clarify with you anything related to Hawaii’s Ignition Interlock regulations. Finally, if you still have more questions about Smart Start’s Ignition Interlock, you can call our Hawaii office at 808-695-2416.
