Local Government Insurance Trust
For nearly 30 years, Maryland’s local governments have covered their primary and excess liability, auto, environmental, property and equipment breakdown insurance needs through the Local Government Insurance Trust (LGIT). Founded in 1987 by act of the Maryland General Assembly through the joint efforts of the Maryland Municipal League (MML) and the Maryland Association of Counties (MACo) LGIT is owned and managed by its members. LGIT’s purpose is to meet local government risk management needs - not to make a profit by selling insurance. Because of LGIT, local governments know they now have coverage available to them at stable rates and predictable costs - regardless of private insurance industry cycles. LGIT also provides a wide variety of Risk Management services including: Training, Grants, the LGIT Online Campus and the HR Compliance Portal helping Members with their HR needs.
