Address Confidentiality Program

If you move to a new location to escape domestic violence, sexual abuse or stalking, the Address Confidentiality Program (ACP) can help keep your new address confidential. This is done through the use of a mail-forwarding service and substitute address. In accordance with Idaho Code § 19-57, all state and local agencies are required to accept the substitute address as the actual address of the individual.

Upon approval of your ACP application, your first-class mail is sent to the secure ACP substitute address and then forwarded to your new home. You can also use the substitute address for a variety of state and local government requirements, such as:

    • Applying for and receiving child support
    • Getting an Idaho driver’s license
    • Enrolling your children in public schools
    • Applying for a marriage license
  •  

The ACP can help protect you and your loved ones by keeping your physical address private, where it would appear in public records.
