I Need Ignition Interlock Financial Assistance in Mississippi!

Smart Start Interlock Device Installation

If you must use an Ignition Interlock because of a DUI conviction or non-adjudication, but you don’t know if you can cover the device’s costs, the state may be able to assist with their indigent fund if you are eligible. If you need Ignition Interlock financial assistance in Mississippi, the state can offset some program costs related to your device.

Mississippi’s Ignition Interlock Indigent Fund

The court ultimately determines whether you are eligible for the indigent program. Mississippi has an Interlock Device fund set aside for indigent individuals to assist them.

If the funds are available, the state can pay up to $50 for installation costs, and up to $50 for the removal cost. The state can also provide up to $30 monthly for verified active use of the Ignition Interlock, such as your calibration appointments. Keep in mind that this indigent fund from the state is available for one vehicle per individual.

How Do I Apply for Eligibility to Mississippi’s Ignition Interlock Indigent Fund?

The fastest way to apply for eligibility to the state’s indigent fund is to ask your contact from your court. The court will provide you a signed order stating that you are declared indigent to the judge.

You may need to pay a state fee of $50 for the Interlock Device fund for persons convicted of DUI, unless you are determined to be indigent by the court. If it’s non-adjudication, you may need to pay a $250 fee.
