    BNY Mellon Pennsylvania Intermediate Municipal Bond Fund

    Why invest in this Fund?

    The fund seeks as high a level of income exempt from federal and Pennsylvania state income taxes as is consistent with the preservation of capital.

    To pursue its goal, the fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in municipal bonds, the interest from which is exempt from federal and Pennsylvania state personal income taxes. The fund also may invest in municipal bonds that are exempt from federal income taxes, but not Pennsylvania personal income taxes, and in taxable bonds.

    The fund's investments in municipal and taxable bonds must be of investment grade (i.e. Baa/BBB or higher) quality at the time of purchase or, if unrated, deemed of comparable quality by the investment adviser. Generally, the fund’s average effective portfolio maturity will be between three and ten years and the average effective duration of the fund’s portfolio will not exceed eight years. The fund may invest in individual municipal and taxable bonds of any maturity or duration.

    In calculating average effective portfolio maturity and average effective portfolio duration, the fund may treat a security that can be repurchased by its issuer on an earlier date (known as a "call date") as maturing on the call date rather than on its stated maturity date.

          MORNINGSTAR CATEGORY Municipal Pennsylvania


          Morningstar Rating™ as of 01/31/24 for the Class M shares; other classes may have different performance characteristics. Overall rating for the Municipal Pennsylvania. Fund ratings are out of 5 Stars: Overall 3 Stars (50 funds rated); 3 Yrs. 4 Stars (50 funds rated); 5 Yrs. 3 Stars (48 funds rated); 10 Yrs. 2 Stars (40 funds rated).
          The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products with at least a 3-year history. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance (not including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees if applicable), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. Managed products; including open-end mutual funds, closed-end funds and exchange-traded funds; are considered a single population for comparative purposes. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5-,and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. © Morningstar, Inc.

          Lipper Category returns and rankings as of 01/31/24, are calculated by Lipper Inc., a Reuters Company, which is a nationally recognized organization that compares the performance of mutual funds with similar investment objectives. The Category returns represent the average performance of included funds, while rankings compare an individual fund's returns to those of the other funds in its category. Both are based on total return performance, with capital gains and dividends reinvested, with annual operating expenses deducted, but without including front or back-end sales charges. Rankings begin with the actual share class inception. Rankings are relative to a peer group and do not necessarily mean that the fund had high total returns. Rankings do not reflect sales loads

          Main Risks

          The fund is subject generally to interest rate, credit, liquidity, call, and market risks, to varying degrees, all of which are more fully described in the fund's prospectus.
          Generally, all other factors being equal, bond prices are inversely related to interest-rate changes and rate increases can cause price declines.
          Investing primarily in a single state may make the fund's portfolio securities more sensitive to risks specific to the state.
          Please refer to the prospectus for a more complete discussion of the fund's main risks.
