New York's counties face many challenges. One of NYSAC's primary goals is to help counties find ways to meet those challenges and support them in serving their residents.
NYSAC's partners were selected through a careful process to choose superior services that best meet the needs of our counties. These providers are familiar with the specific needs of counties, and their programs are designed to help counties save money while providing exceptional services.
NYSAC offers members cost-saving programs and services in the following areas (details can be found below):
