Belmont Housing Resources for WNY is pleased to offer participating area landlords who have tenants receiving Section 8 Rental Assistance the convenience of HAPCheck™ and Direct Deposit for their Housing Assistance Program payments.

This secure on-line system enables Sec. 8 landlords to verify that the correct HAP payments have been deposited into their bank account. The easy-to-use site will allow you to review payments anytime from any computer from as far back as 18 months ago.
