Stop Payment Request: To request a stop payment on Section 8 housing assistance payment (HAP) check(s), please fax your written request to DHA Section 8 Department at 720-932-3002. Reissues are processed within 30 days. Once a request for stop payment request is made the original check is immediately voided and may not be cashed (even if the original check is received the same day as the stop payment request).
Replacement Check Request: To request a replacement check for a Section 8 housing assistance payment, please fax your written request to DHA Section 8 Department at 720-932-3002. Replacement checks are issued within 30 days and can only be “reissued” to the same vendor as noted on the original check.
If the landlord did not cash their check and it has been cleared by the bank, whether the request is a stop payment or replacement check, the landlord will need to complete and sign the Affidavit of Forgery form.
IMPORTANT NOTE: DHA Section 8 checks are not forwarded; therefore, please keep the Section 8 Department informed of your current address at all times.
