The Address Confidentiality Program (ACP) was created to help victims of family violence, sexual assault, and stalking keep their actual address confidential.
The program is administered by the Texas Office of the Attorney General and provides a substitute post office box address and free mail forwarding service to victims that participate.
It is a safety tool available for victims when developing an overall safety plan. It is not a guarantee in safety
To be eligible you must be a victim of family violence, sexual assault, or stalking and reside in Texas or have plans to relocate to Texas. Household members may also be eligible to participate in the program.
The substitute address can be used as the participant's main address for their driver license, voter, vehicle and school registrations, as well as for most court and government documents.
To apply you must meet with an advocate from a police department, prosecutors office, domestic violence shelter, or sexual assault center to discuss a safety plan and complete an application. The advocate will then submit the application to the Attorney General’s Office.
You may also complete an application on your own if you have a protective order or temporary injunction in place, or possess documentation of family violence, sexual assault, or stalking.
