I have purchased a device but I haven’t booked an installation date yet – can I apply for funding?
Yes. The process for claiming EMFF funding has been streamlined. Fishers should now claim their grant by providing proof of purchase from their preferred supplier. Grant applications will be processed within 3-5 working days of receipt of all required information.
When completing your application online, you will be asked to provide an installation date, or where that is not yet confirmed, the date you purchased your I-VMS device.
To meet EMFF grant payment conditions, devices must be installed within 90 days of purchase and claims must be made by 30 November 2023 for over six metre vessels.
