Address Confidentiality Program
The goal of Connecticut’s Address Confidentiality Program is to help crime victims (family violence, sexual assault, injury or risk of injury to a minor, or stalking) keep their new address confidential.

The ACP offers its participants two services each of which helps keep the victim’s new location secret. One part is the participant’s use of an ACP substitute mailing address. The ACP provides cost-free mail forwarding services. The Office of the Secretary of the State serves as each program participant’s legal agent for service of process and receipt of first class mail. The second part of the program prevents public access to a participant’s actual address on government records including voter registry lists and keeps marriage records confidential.
