Address Confidentiality Program

Texas has a program designed to help victims of family violence, sexual assault and stalking keep their residential address confidential. The Address Confidentiality Program, administered by the Attorney General of Texas, provides a substitute post office box address and free mail forwarding service for participants.

This substitute address can be used as the participant's:

  1. Address on their driver license
  2. Voter and school registrations
  3. Most court and government documents

Applicants must meet with a local domestic violence shelter, sexual assault center, or law enforcement or prosecution staff member to discuss a safety plan and learn more about the enrollment process. After the application is approved, the participant will receive an authorization card with a substitute post office box address.
