The Baltimore Regional Housing Partnership will issue housing assistance payments by direct deposit only. To sign up for direct deposit, the payee must fill in the information requested and submit a blank voided check with this form. Use the "Choose File" button to upload an image file of a voided check from your financial institution.
The agreement represented by this authorization remains in effect until cancelled by the payee by
written notice to BRHP in such time and in such manner as to afford the voucher program and the financial
institution a reasonable opportunity to act upon it, or by the death or legal incapacity of the payee.
Upon cancellation by the payee, the payee should notify the receiving financial institution that they are
doing so. The financial institution may cancel the agreement represented by this authorization by
providing the payee a written notice in advance of the cancellation date. The payee must immediately
advise the BRHP if the financial institution cancels the authorization.
The selected financial institution will continue receiving the payee’s direct deposit, until the payee
notifies BRHP regarding a change of financial institution for direct deposit. To effect this change, the
payee will complete a new AUTHORIZATION FOR DIRECT DEPOSIT form. The change shall take effect in such time
and in such manner as to afford the voucher program and the financial institution a reasonable opportunity to
act upon it.
Federal law provides a fine of not more than $10,000 or imprisonment for not more than five years or both for
presenting a false statement or making a fraudulent claim. BRHP may debar an owner or management agent
who violates this law from future participation in the Program.
I hereby authorize BRHP to deposit my Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) to my account at the financial
institution named above. I acknowledge that the origination of ACH transactions to my account must
comply with the provisions of U.S. law.
Acceptance of direct deposit of payments certifies compliance with the HAP contract. By accepting direct
deposit of Housing Assistance Payments, the payee certifies that any unit(s) assisted under the HAP Contract is
in full compliance with contract terms.
