About Iowa LGRP


The Iowa Local Government Risk Pool Commission (Iowa LGRP) is organized under Iowa Code Chapter 28E, founded in the fall of 2019 by three originating K-12 public school districts in an effort to provide greater stability to school district budgets by pooling risks.  Iowa LGRP is serviced by WoodRiver Energy & ISFIS, with decades of combined energy service experience working with Iowa schools and local governments.

Iowa LGRP's fixed annual premium for participation is one less thing I have to worry about.
Superintendents have more important issues to focus on than paying attention to natural
gas prices and how the variability will affect our district's budget.

When natural gas prices skyrocketed in February 2021, our budget was protected with Iowa LGRP.
Not only did we not see the large invoices many other districts received from their providers,
but we received a premium refund for the year.

The Iowa LGRP is a tool our district uses to help mitigate the natural gas price volatility
we used to see in our General Fund.
