Financial Assistance Details

The Department of Revenue administers an account established to provide financial assistance for first-time offenders installing an ignition interlock device or those designated as persistent drunk drivers completing their initial installation on or after January 1, 2014, who are unable to pay the full costs of the device.  If you qualify for assistance and funds are available, the Department may pay for a portion of your interlock device cost.  Other restrictions and conditions may apply.    

 

Eligibility is determined at the time of your interlock installation and following criteria apply: 

  1. You are either a first-time offender with a violation date on or after January 1, 2009 or have been designated as a persistent drunk driver completing your initial interlock installation on or after January 1, 2014.  
  2. You are Lawfully Present in U.S. and a Colorado resident
  3. You were an adult driver (21 years of age) at the time of the violation
  4. Your Federal Adjusted Gross Income (FAGI) on the State of Colorado tax file falls within a predetermined percentage of the current year Poverty Guidelines established by Health and Human Services. 
 

Any subsequent suspension or revocation of your driving privileges will terminate financial assistance.
