    The Delaware Valley Trusts are member-owned, not-for-profit risk sharing pools that include the Delaware Valley Property & Liability Trust (DVPLT), the Delaware Valley Workers’ Compensation Trust (DVWCT) and the Delaware Valley Health Trust (DVHT) each of which is a member of the Delaware Valley Municipal Management Association. The Delaware Valley Trusts serve only public entities and offer its members long-term financial stability through stable rates and a wide array of value-added benefits and economic incentives including cash dividends, rate stabilization funds, multi-trust discounts and grant funding to make quality coverage even more affordable. 

    The Property & Liability Trust was formed in 1989 with 18 charter members. The Workers’ Compensation Trust was established soon after, in 1992. In 1999, as member municipalities experienced the volatility of health insurance rates, the Health Trust was formed and today provides health coverage to over 160 public entities and 24,000 enrollees and their covered dependents.

The CFO oversees a team of three employees. The Trusts employ a total team of 40.
