DIRECT DEPOSIT PROGRAM

Since 2010, MCHA Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) are completed via Direct Deposit only – HAP checks will no longer be mailed.

To ensure receipt of HAP payments each month you must provide the MCHA with the below information related to an active bank account. The direct deposit payment will be available in your account typically by the third business day of the month.

MCHA has implemented an online system that will allow landlords to view their accounts. You will be provided secure internet access to view/print your statements online at our Landlord Access website. You can use this service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, right from your office or home – anywhere you have internet access.  To access the Landlord Access website click here:

If you do not have an active email account, the MCHA will plan to provide hard copies of account statements that you may pick-up at the MCHA’s Norristown office by the 15th of the month. For copies of statements from prior months, please send a request in writing to Theresa Getty at the address below.

The Authorization for Direct Deposit (CLICK LINK ABOVE) must be completed and signed. To continue to participate in the Housing Choice Voucher Program you must attach a voided check or savings account information (if not a checking account) and return it to the address below.
