Electronic Funds Transfers and Reliacard

Electronic Funds Transfers Now Available

If you receive a Utility Reimbursement Payment (URP) from the Department of Housing Services, you may now elect to receive it as an Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT), or loaded onto a Reliacard (a pre-paid debit card) instead of a paper check.

Electronic Fund Transfers

EFTs are paid directly to your bank account. There is no need to wait for a check or worry about a check getting lost in the mail.

If you are interested in setting up EFT for your Utility Reimbursement Payment, you must complete this form and return it to us.


Reliacard is currently not available; please check back again in August 2016.


If you have questions about EFT, please send an e-mail to our EFT Contact.
