Is there any funding support available?
In line with assurances given to fishers, MMO confirms it will cover purchase and installation costs of up to £1,050 to support fishers secure a suitable I-VMS device.
The process for claiming EMFF funding has been streamlined and fishers should now claim their grant by providing the invoice and accompanying proof of purchase from their preferred supplier.
Grant applications will be processed within 3-5 working days of receipt of all required information.
To meet EMFF grant payment conditions, devices must be installed within 90 days of purchase and claims must be made by 18 December for under six metre vessels.
If you have any questions about grant funding of a non-type approved device, please contact our grants team by phoning 0330 041 6579 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
