Safe At Home Program

Safe At HomeĀ is a statewide address confidentiality program administered by the Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State. It is designed to help survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, or others who fear for their safety maintain a confidential address. It was established by Minnesota state law.

Safe at Home Participant

The participant should provide the well disclosure certificate, with an attached copy of the Notice to Government Entity provided by the Secretary of State's office, to the title company or agency handling the closing, with a consent to share the information with MDH.

Well Disclosure Certificate Filer (typically a title company or law firm)

At the present time, electronic filing of the well disclosure certificate (e-Well Disclosure Certificate) is not set up to accommodate confidential information. The "paper" version of the well disclosure certificate must be used for property owners identified in the Safe At Home Program. The Well Disclosure Certificate along with the appropriate Safe at Home forms must be provided to the county recorder's office at the time the deed is recorded. .

County Recorder

Safe at Home Program documents should be separate from all other well disclosure certificate mailings. Mail the "paper" well disclosure certificate along with the appropriate Safe at Home forms in an envelope marked confidential to:
