Minnesota Counties Intergovernmental Trust serves county governments and other associated county-level public entities, such as soil and water conservation districts, agricultural societies (fair boards), historical societies, health and human services, libraries, public safety entities, solid waste operations, etc.

MCIT Members Consist of Counties and Associated Public Entities

MCIT member organizations are varied but share key characteristics:

  • Entities applying for membership must demonstrate they are entitled to the immunities and the tort limits offered in Minnesota Statutes Chapter 466.
  • Entities requesting membership must also demonstrate a commitment to risk management and loss control. MCIT reserves the right to decline membership to any entity that may pose a threat to the fiscal health of MCIT.
