Public Deposit Protection Commission
The Treasurer’s Office runs the PDPC. The commission oversees standards, compliance and information for participants in a program to protect local taxpayer funds deposited in approved institutions.
School Bond Guarantee Program
Run by the Treasurer’s Office, this program helps school districts save money through lower financing costs once local bonds have been approved by voters for important school renovation, expansion or new construction projects.
Local Government Investment Pool
More than 500 cities, counties, school districts and other Washington state local or regional government units pool their short-term surplus cash in the LGIP, managed by the Treasurer’s Office. It protects taxpayer funds, earns them a competitive interest rate, and maintains 100 percent liquidity.
Statewide Custody Program
Local governments and state higher education institutions can save time and money on making crucial custody arrangements for stocks and bonds, under this special program operated by the Office of the State Treasurer.
A user-friendly compendium details the taxes remitted to the state and distributed in part back to counties and cities.
