In an effort to assist NYGFOA members during this unprecedented and challenging time, below is a compilation of resources from authoritative health organizations, the federal and state government as well as our sister associations. As additional resources are identified they will be added to this page. 

We have also created a Facebook 'Members Only' group to allow you to ask questions and share ideas directly with each other.

NYGFOA is also available if you have questions, or are seeking information not found in the list of resources. Please do not hesitate to contact the NYGFOA office at 518-465-1512 or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


NYGFOA Members Only Facebook Group (NEW)

At a time when we must be isolated, we need each other more than ever. In an effort to keep NYGFOA members connected and accessible to one another, this Members Only Group was created so you can collaborate, share how you are responding to the various Executive Orders, how you are adjusting to the changing financial landscape, and more. We hope you will use this format to facilitate peer to peer discussions as we navigate through this new and uncharted time.

To join the Members-only Facebook Group, please click on the below link. When you join the group it will ask you for your first and last name and entity. Our staff will be accepting members Monday-Friday, throughout the workday.
