Enrollment Process

  1. Meet with an Application Assistant (AA). AAs are individuals who provide counseling, referrals, and other direct services to survivors of violence or are protected healthcare workers. AAs are trained and certified by the ACP. At the bottom of this page is a link to the Application Center Locations listing of certified Application Assistants. 
    • You and the AA will discuss your eligibility for the ACP and assess whether the program is a good fit for your circumstances.
    • AAs are not employees of the ACP and may have agency service limitations.
    • Only AAs can make ACP referrals and submit ACP applications.
  2. If you and the AA determine that the ACP should become part of your overall safety plan, you and the AA will complete and sign the ACP Application Form.
    • Individuals who reside in the same location as the Primary Applicant can enroll as a co-applicant and should be listed on the Application Form.
    • Anyone listed as a co-applicant who is 18 or older must be present at the meeting to sign the Application Form.
    • Children can enroll with the permission of their legal guardian.
  3. The AA submits your application to the ACP. The ACP processes applications within 3-4 business days.
  4. The ACP assigns your household a substitute address and mails you a "Welcome Packet" which contains program information, guidance, and forms.
  5. Your certification in the program is valid for 4 years from your enrollment date. You will be contacted prior to that date regarding renewal for another 4 years. You may voluntarily withdraw from the program at any time.
