Confidential Address Program
The Nevada Confidential Address Program (CAP) provides victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and/or stalking with a fictitious address and confidential mail forwarding services to ensure victim-survivor safety. The CAP is run through and maintained by the Division of Child and Family Services.
Two main aspects of CAP:
(1) A fictitious mailing address and confidential mail forwarding program
(2) Confidential voter registration records
Participants enrolled in the program use the fictitious address instead of their real address. The fictitious address is to be used instead of a person’s home, work or school address.
Eligibility criteria for applicants:
• Must be a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and/or stalking;
• In fear of their safety;
• Have specific evidence showing that the adult, child or incompetent person has been a victim of the above mentioned crimes;
• An adult, or parent or guardian acting on behalf of an incompetent person.
Individuals interested in applying for the CAP must meet with a CAP Certified Advocate – a list of advocates can be located here. Advocates will work with the victim-survivor to determine if they meet the criteria of the CAP. If they are eligible, the advocate will submit the application to the Program Officer. Individuals are not authorized to the CAP until they receive their welcome packet that includes the authorization card and letter.
