COVID-19 Resources For CDGA Member Clubs

As we continue to move through very uncertain times, the CDGA office receives many questions each day. As a not-for-profit association of member clubs, both public and private, that stretch throughout the northern two-thirds of Illinois, at times it's difficult to provide specific answers. This is especially true as it relates to regulations that have been implemented by governmental agencies and programs that can help to alleviate financial hardship.

In an effort to provide member clubs with up-to-date information, we have created this section on our website. While we understand that not all questions will be answered, our goal was to develop one location where member club staff/administrators will find links to various organizations and governmental agencies.

We would encourage you to continue to rely on individuals that you work with when it comes to financial and/or legal questions, and we hope this section we created will streamline the process of finding information. If you have thoughts for any organizations/agencies that should be added to this page, please email them to info@cdga.org, as this page will be updated as new information/resources become available.
