Dear Stockholder:

          Your Dreyfus fund(s) and certain other funds in The Dreyfus Family of Funds will hold special stockholder meetings on November 30, 2006. Stockholders of each of these funds will be asked to elect Board members of their funds. The nominees are current Board members of some or all of these funds. The election of additional Board members to your fund is being proposed primarily so as to consolidate the Boards of these funds. The enclosed proxy statement describes the nominees' qualifications and each of their respective current roles overseeing funds in The Dreyfus Family of Funds. Please take the time to read the enclosed materials.

          Since the proposal to elect Board members is common to these funds, we have combined the proxy statement to save on fund expenses. If you own shares of more than one of these Dreyfus funds, the combined proxy statement also may save you the time of reading more than one document before you vote. If you own shares of more than one of these Dreyfus funds on the record date for the meeting, please note thateach fund has a separate proxy card. You should vote one for each fund in which you own shares.

          Remember, your vote is extremely important, no matter how large or small your fund holdings. By voting promptly, you can help avoid additional costs that are incurred with follow-up letters and calls.

          To vote, you may use any of the following methods:

By Mail. Please complete, date and sign the enclosed proxy card for each fund in which you own shares and mail it in the enclosed, postage-paid envelope.

By Internet. Have your proxy card(s) available. Go to the website listed on the proxy card. Enter your control number from your proxy card. Follow the instructions on the website.

By Telephone. Have your proxy card(s) available. Call the toll-free number listed on the proxy card. Enter your control number from your proxy card. Follow the recorded instructions.

In Person. Any shareholder who attends the meeting in person may vote by ballot at the meeting.

          We encourage you to vote through the Internet or by telephone using the number that appears on your proxy card(s). These voting methods will save the funds money because they would not have to pay for return-mail postage. If you later decide to attend the meeting, you may revoke your proxy and vote your shares in person at the meeting. Whichever voting method you choose, please take the time to read the full text of the proxy statement before you vote.

          Your vote is very important to us. If you have any questions before you vote, please call one of the Dreyfus service representatives at 1-800-645-6561. Thank you for your response and for your continued investment with The Dreyfus Family of Funds.

Sincerely,

Stephen E. Canter
President

("DBMMF"), Dreyfus BASIC U.S. Government Money Market Fund ("DBUSMMF"), Dreyfus California Intermediate Municipal Bond Fund ("DCAIBF"), Dreyfus Connecticut Intermediate Municipal Bond Fund ("DCTIBF"), Dreyfus Massachusetts Intermediate Municipal Bond Fund ("DMAIBF"), Dreyfus New Jersey Intermediate Municipal Bond Fund ("DNJIBF"), Dreyfus Pennsylvania Intermediate Municipal Bond Fund ("DPAIBF"), Dreyfus Premier Fixed Income Funds ("DPFIF"), Dreyfus Premier GNMA Fund ("DPGNMA"), Dreyfus Premier Municipal Bond Fund ("DPMBF"), Dreyfus Premier New York Municipal Bond Fund ("DPNYBF"), Dreyfus Premier State Municipal Bond Fund ("DPSBF"), Dreyfus Premier Value Equity Funds ("DPVEF"), Dreyfus Premier Worldwide Growth Fund, Inc.

("GMMF"), General Municipal Money Market Funds, Inc. ("GMMMF"), General New York Municipal Bond Fund, Inc. ("GNYBF"), General New York Municipal Money Market Fund ("GNYMMF") (each, a "Fund" and, collectively, the "Funds") to be used at the Special Meeting of Stockholders (the "Meeting") of each Fund to be held on Thursday, November 30, 2006 at the time set forth on Schedule 1 to this Proxy Statement, at the offices of The Dreyfus Corporation, 200 Park Avenue, 7th Floor, New York, New York 10166, for the purposes set forth in such Notice. Stockholders of record at the close of business on October 11, 2006 are entitled to receive notice of and to vote at the Meeting. Stockholders are entitled to one vote for each Fund share held and fractional votes for each fractional Fund share held. Stockholders can vote only on matters affecting the Fund(s) of which they are stockholders. Shares represented by executed and unrevoked proxies will be voted in accordance with the specifications made thereon. If any enclosed form of proxy is executed and returned, it nevertheless may be revoked by another proxy, by calling the toll-free telephone number, through the Internet or by letter or telegram directed to the relevant Fund, which must indicate the stockholder's name and account number. To be effective, such revocation must be received before the Meeting. In addition, any stockholder who attends the Meeting in person may vote by ballot at the Meeting, thereby canceling any proxy previously given.

          Stockholders of each Fund will vote as a single class (which includes all series of a Fund) and will vote separately from the stockholders of each other Fund on the election of Board members. It is essential that stockholders who own shares in more than one Fund complete, date, sign and returneach proxy card they receive.

          Information as to the number of shares outstanding and share ownership for each Fund is set forth on Schedule 2 to this Proxy Statement.

          The principal executive offices of each Fund are located at 200 Park Avenue, New York, New York 10166.Copies of each Fund's most recent Annual and Semi-Annual Reports are available upon request, without charge, by writing to the Fund at 144 Glenn Curtiss Boulevard, Uniondale, New York 11556-0144, or by calling toll-free 1-800-645-6561.

PROPOSAL: ELECTION OF BOARD MEMBERS

          It is proposed that stockholders of each Fund consider the election of the individuals listed below (the "Nominees") as Board members of their Fund as indicated. The Nominees were selected and nominated by those members of the present Boards of the relevant Funds who are not "interested persons" of the Funds ("Independent Board members"), as defined in the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the "1940 Act"). The Nominees currently serve as Board members of some or, in the case of Joseph S. DiMartino, all of the Funds. (Mr. DiMartino was previously elected by stockholders of DPAIBF and, thus, does not need to be re-elected to the Board of that Fund.) The election of additional Board members to the Boards of Funds is being proposed primarily so as to consolidate the Boards of the Funds. Consolidating the Boards of the Funds may provide certain administrative efficiencies and potential future cost savings for the Funds. Each Nominee has consented to being named in this Proxy Statement and has agreed to serve as a Board member of the indicated Funds if elected. With respect to DAF, DPGNMA, DPMBF, DPNYBF, DPSBF, DPWGF, GCAMMF, GGSMMF, GMMF, GMMMF, GNYBF and GNYMMF, the Nominees for election as Board members of these Funds are: David W. Burke, Joseph S. DiMartino, Diane Dunst, Jay I. Meltzer, Daniel Rose, Warren B. Rudman and Sander Vanocur. With respect to DBMMF, DBUSMMF, DCAIBF, DCTIBF, DMAIBF, DNJIBF, DPAIBF, DPFIF and DPVEF, the Nominees for election as Board members of these Funds are: Clifford L. Alexander, Jr., Peggy C. Davis, Joseph S. DiMartino (except DPAIBF), Ernest Kafka and Nathan Leventhal.

          The persons named as proxies on the enclosed proxy card(s) will vote for the election of the Nominees unless authority to vote for any or all of the Nominees is withheld in the proxy. Each Nominee elected will serve as an Independent Board member of the respective Fund commencing, subject to the discretion of the Board, on or about January 1, 2007 (other than those Nominees who are current Independent Board members of such Fund) and until his or her successor is duly elected and qualified. It is not contemplated that any Nominee will be unable to serve as a Board member for any reason, but if that should occur prior to the Meeting, the proxy holders will vote for such other nominee or nominees as the Funds' Independent Board members may recommend. Independent board members of investment companies play a critical role in overseeing fund operations and policing potential conflicts of interest between the fund and its investment adviser and other service providers. The following tables present information about the current Board members and Nominees, including their principal occupations and other board memberships and affiliations and when they first became a Board member of a Fund of which they are currently a Board member. The address of each Board member and Nominee is c/o The Dreyfus Corporation, 200 Park Avenue, 8th Floor, New York, New York 10166. Information about each Board member's and Nominee's ownership of shares of the Funds and other relevant information, including information about the Funds' officers, is set forth on Exhibit A to this Proxy Statement.

          Each Fund typically pays its Board members its allocated portion of an annual retainer and a fee per meeting attended for the Fund and other funds in The Dreyfus Family of Funds, and reimburses them for their expenses. The Chairman of the Board receives an additional 25% of such compensation. Emeritus Board members of a Fund are entitled to receive an annual retainer and a per meeting attended fee of one-half the amount paid to them as Board members. For information on the amount of compensation paid to each current Board member by a Fund for the Fund's last fiscal year, and paid by all funds in The Dreyfus Family of Funds for which such person was a Board member for the year ended December 31, 2005, see Exhibit A to this Proxy Statement.

          Each Fund has a standing audit, nominating (or governance/nominating) and compensation committee, each of which is comprised of the Fund's Independent Board members. For information on the number of committee meetings held during a Fund's last fiscal year, see Exhibit A to this Proxy Statement.

          The function of each Fund's audit committee (the "Audit Committee") is to (i) oversee the Fund's accounting and financial reporting processes and the audits of the Fund's financial statements and (ii) assist in the Board's oversight of the integrity of the Fund's financial statements, the Fund's compliance with legal and regulatory requirements and the independent registered public accounting firm's qualifications, independence and performance.

          Each Fund's nominating (or governance/nominating) committee (the "Nominating Committee") is composed entirely of the Fund's Independent Board members and is responsible for selecting and nominating persons as members of the Board for election or appointment by the Board and for election by stockholders. In evaluating potential nominees, including any nominees recommended by stockholders, the committee takes into consideration various factors listed in the Nominating Committee charter, including character and integrity, business and professional experience, and whether the committee believes the person has the ability to apply sound and independent business judgment and would act in the interest of the Fund and its shareholders. The Nominating Committee will consider recommendations for nominees from shareholders submitted to the Secretary of the Fund, c/o The Dreyfus Corporation Legal Department, 200 Park Avenue, 8th Floor East, New York, New York 10166, which includes information regarding the recommended nominee as specified in the Nominating Committee charter. A copy of the form of the Funds' Nominating Committee charter is set forth in Exhibit B to this Proxy Statement.

          The function of the compensation committee is to establish the appropriate compensation for serving on the Board. Each Fund also has a standing pricing/evaluation committee comprised of any one Board member. The function of the pricing/evaluation committee is to assist in valuing the Fund's investments.

Required Vote

          For each Fund, the election of a Nominee requires the affirmative vote of a plurality of votes cast at the Meeting for the election of Board members of the Fund.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Selection of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

          The 1940 Act requires that each Fund's independent registered public accounting firm be selected by a majority of the Independent Board members of the Fund. One of the purposes of each Fund's Audit Committee is to recommend to the Fund's Board the selection, retention or termination of the independent registered public accounting firm for the Fund. Each Fund's Audit Committee recommended, and each Fund's Board, including a majority of its Independent Board members, approved, the selection of Ernst & Young LLP ("Ernst & Young"), as the Fund's independent registered public accounting firm for the Fund's current fiscal year. Representatives of Ernst & Young are expected to be present at the Meeting and will have an opportunity to make a statement (if the representatives so desire) and to respond to appropriate questions. After reviewing the relevant Fund's audited financial statements for the Fund's most recently completed fiscal year, each Fund's Audit Committee recommended to the Fund's Board that such statements be included in the Fund's Annual Report to Stockholders.

          Information regarding the audit and related fees that Ernst & Young charged the Funds is set forth in Exhibit A.

          The Audit Committee for each Fund considered the compatibility of any non-audit services with the independence of Ernst & Young LLP.

Investment Adviser, Distributor and Transfer Agent

          Dreyfus, located at 200 Park Avenue, New York, New York 10166, serves as each Fund's investment adviser.

          Dreyfus Service Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dreyfus with principal offices at 200 Park Avenue, New York, New York 10166, serves as each Fund's distributor.

          Dreyfus Transfer, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dreyfus, 200 Park Avenue, New York, New York 10166, serves as each Fund's transfer and dividend disbursing agent.

Voting Information

          Each Fund will bear its pro rata share of the cost of soliciting proxies based on the net assets of the Fund. In addition to the use of the mails, proxies may be solicited personally or by telephone, and each Fund may pay persons holding Fund shares in their names or those of their nominees for their expenses in sending soliciting materials to their principals. Certain Funds may retain a proxy solicitor to assist in the solicitation of proxies primarily by contacting stockholders by telephone, which is expected to cost approximately $54,000 plus any out of pocket expenses, such cost to be borne pro rata among such Funds based on their net assets. Authorizations to execute proxies may be obtained by telephonic instructions in accordance with procedures designed to authenticate the stockholder's identity. In all cases where a telephonic proxy is solicited (as opposed to where the stockholder calls the toll-free number directly to vote), the stockholder will be asked to provide his or her address and social security number (in the case of an individual) or taxpayer identification number (in the case of a non-individual) and to confirm that the stockholder has received the Fund's proxy statement and proxy card in the mail. Within 72 hours of receiving a stockholder's telephonic voting instructions, a confirmation will be sent to the stockholder to ensure that the vote has been taken in accordance with the stockholder's instructions and to provide a telephone number to call immediately if the stockholder's instructions are not correctly reflected in the confirmation. Shares represented by executed and unrevoked proxies will be voted in accordance with the specifications made thereon, and if no voting instructions are given, shares will be voted "FOR" the proposal. Any stockholder giving a proxy may revoke it at any time before it is exercised by submitting to the Fund a written notice of revocation or a subsequently executed proxy, by calling the toll-free telephone number or through the Internet, or by attending the Meeting and voting in person.

          If a proxy is properly executed and returned accompanied by instructions to withhold authority to vote, represents a broker "non-vote" (that is, a proxy from a broker or nominee indicating that such person has not received instructions from the beneficial owner or other person entitled to vote Fund shares on a particular matter with respect to which the broker or nominee does not have a discretionary power) or is marked with an abstention (collectively, "abstentions"), the Fund shares represented thereby will be considered to be present at the Meeting for purposes of determining the existence of a quorum for the transaction of business. Abstentions will not constitute a vote in favor of the proposal.

          If a quorum is not present at the Meeting, the persons named as proxies may propose one or more adjournments of the Meeting to permit further solicitation of proxies.

OTHER MATTERS

          No Fund's Board is aware of any other matters which may come before the Meeting. However, should any such matters properly come before the Meeting, it is the intention of the persons named in the accompanying form of proxy to vote the proxy in accordance with their judgment on such matters.

NOTICE TO BANKS, BROKER/DEALERS AND VOTING TRUSTEES
AND THEIR NOMINEES

          As of September 25, 2006, none of the current Board members or Nominees or their immediate family members owned securities of Dreyfus or any person (other than a registered investment company) directly or indirectly controlling, controlled by or under common control with Dreyfus.

PERTAINING TO THE BOARD OF EACH FUND

          The number of Board meetings and, where applicable, committee meetings, held by each Fund during the Fund's last fiscal year are as follows:

           During each Fund's last fiscal year, each current Board member attended at least 75% of the aggregate of all of the meetings of the Board of each Fund (held during the period he or she was a Board member) and 75% of the meetings held by a committee of the Board of each Fund on which he or she served (during the period that he or she served). There were no pricing/evaluation committee meetings held during the last fiscal year for any of the Funds.

COMPENSATION TABLE

          Each Fund currently pays its Board members its allocated portion of an annual retainer of $50,000 in the case of DAF, DPGNMA, DPMBF, DPNYBF, DPSBF, DPWGF, GCAMMF, GGSMMF, GMMF, GMMMF, GNYBF and GNYMMF, or $25,000 in the case of DBMMF, DBUSMMF, DCAIBF, DCTIBF, DMAIBF, DNJIBF, DPAIBF, DPFIF and DPVEF, and a fee of $6,500 in the case of DAF, DPGNMA, DPMBF, DPNYBF, DPSBF, DPWGF, GCAMMF, GGSMMF, GMMF, GMMMF, GNYBF and GNYMMF, or $4,000 in the case of DBMMF, DBUSMMF, DCAIBF, DCTIBF, DMAIBF, DNJIBF, DPAIBF, DPFIF and DPVEF, per meeting (with a minimum of $500 per meeting and per telephone meeting) attended, and reimburses them for their expenses. The Chairman of the Board receives an additional 25% of such compensation. Emeritus Board members are entitled to receive an annual retainer and a per meeting attended fee of one-half the amount paid to them as Board members.

          The aggregate amount of compensation paid to each current Board member by each Fund for the Fund's last fiscal year, and by all funds in The Dreyfus Family of Funds for which such person was a Board member (the number of portfolios of such funds is set forth in parenthesis next to each Board member's total compensation) for the year ended December 31, 2005, were as follows:

* For Service Affiliates (i.e., Dreyfus and any entity controlling, controlled by or under common control with Dreyfus that provides ongoing services to the Fund), such fees represent only those fees that require pre-approval by the audit committee.

          Audit Committee Pre-Approval Policies and Procedures. Each Fund's Audit Committee has established policies and procedures (the "Policy") for pre-approval (within specified fee limits) of the independent registered public accounting firm's engagements for non-audit services to the Fund and Service Affiliates without specific case-by-case consideration. Pre-approval considerations include whether the proposed services are compatible with maintaining the independent registered public accounting firm's independence. The Policy and services covered therein are considered annually. In addition, proposed services requiring pre-approval but not covered by the Policy are considered from time to time as necessary.

          Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm's Independence. Each Fund's Audit Committee has considered whether the provision of non-audit services that were rendered to Service Affiliates which did not require pre-approval are compatible with maintaining the independent registered public accounting firm's independence.
