background shadows

The Address Confidentiality Program (ACP) is a statewide program that provides a legal substitute address for victims and survivors of domestic violence, stalking, sexual violence, and reproductive health patients and providers. The intent of ACP is to protect the location of a survivor's physical address (residential, work and/or school) as part of a comprehensive plan to reduce the risk of future harm. All state and local government agencies must accept the legal substitute address as the participant's legal address of record. 

ACP relies on the assistance of victim service agencies and other private entities to enroll participants in the program. To meet eligibility criteria, applicants must have experienced fear or threat of abuse and must relocate to a new location. ACP is unable to remove addresses that are already publicly recorded but can protect future exposure.
