Address Confidentially Program

Address Confidentiality Program

An Address Confidentiality Program allows victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking or other types of crime to receive mail at a confidential address, while keeping their actual address undisclosed. This is usually done through the state's Secretary of State’s address or some other address which will legally substitute the agency’s address for the victim’s physical address on public records.

According to the National Network to End Domestic Violence,

"Address Confidentiality Programs (ACP) and Confidential Voter Listings are programs administered by the state enabling victims of domestic violence (and sometime victims of sexual assault and/or stalking) to participate in the voting process without fear of being found by their abusers. ACPs generally provide a substitute address for all public records. Confidential Voter Listings only provide confidentiality on election-related public records."
