The Program (ACP) was created to conceal the addresses of victims of stalking, domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and of individuals at risk of being threatened or physically harmed from being located by their perpetrators through public records.
ACP provides victims with a designated (substitute) address that can be used instead of their real address. The designated address can be used by governmental entities, employers, schools, or institutions of higher education, whenever an address is required by public agencies. Private companies are not required by law to use the designated (substitute) address; however, program participants can request they use it.
ACP provides a free mail forwarding service. All first-class, certified, and registered mail sent to the designated (substitute) address will be processed and forwarded to the participant’s real/confidential address. This service does not forward 3rd class mail or packages.
Do not file a change of address with the post office by doing so, it will make the address public.
Who can enroll in ACP?
An individual 18 years of age or older, an emancipated minor, a parent or guardian acting on behalf of a minor or a ward (incapacitated person) must be:
- A victim of domestic violence, stalking, sexual assault, human trafficking, or an individual at risk of being threatened or physically harmed.

How to Enroll in the ACP
The Address Confidentiality Program (ACP) has adopted MILogin, the State of Michigan’s single sign on application for online access to many state services. If you don’t have a MILogin account, you will need to create one from the MILogin page.
The ACP recommends creating a new email and a new MILogin account to help protect your information and reduce the risk of others accessing your account.
If you experience issues accessing MILogin we ask that you try following these directions before reaching out to the ORS Customer Service Contact Center for assistance.
- We recommend using the following browsers: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Mozilla Firefox.
- If you are still unable to access ACP, our contact center is available at 800-381-5111 or 517-284-4400 from 8:30a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
