    Why invest in this Fund?

    • Seeks to provide investors a monthly federal tax-exempt dividend by investing primarily in high quality municipal bonds.
    • With yield scarce across many bond securities, investors may be drawn to municipal bonds because of their local government appeal and tax-exempt status.
    • The management team is very experienced investing in municipal bonds and the fund has a history of over 30 years.
    • May be appropriate as a conservative municipal bond holding within diversified portfolios.

    The SEC 30-day Yield is calculated by dividing the net investment income per share earned during the period (calculated in accordance with regulatory guidelines) by the maximum offering price per share on the last day of the period.

    Unsubsidized yield displays what the fund's 30-Day SEC Yield would have been had no fee waiver or expense reimbursement been in place during the period.

     

    NAV - A fund's NAV is the sum of all its assets less any liabilities, divided by the number of shares outstanding.

    Market Price - The market price is the most recent price at which the fund was traded.

    Annualized Distribution Rate - It represents the latest declared regular distribution, annualized, relative to the market price as of quarter end. Special distributions, including special capital gains distributions, are not included in the calculation. Distributions are sourced entirely from net investment income, unless otherwise noted.

    Net Assets - It is the total assets minus liabilities, including the assets attributable to the Auction Preferred Stock.

    Managed Assets - It is the total assets of the fund, including any assets attributable to leverage, minus the fund's accrued liabilities, other than any liabilities or obligations attributable to leverage.

    Total Leverage - It is the amount of borrowed funds used to purchase assets in order to potentially enhance returns.

    Leveraged Effective Duration - It takes into account the impact of the fund’s use of leverage on the potential effect of interest-rate changes on the fund’s portfolio and optional call provisions of the fund’s portfolio holdings.

    Average Effective Maturity (AEM) - is a measure of maturity that takes into account the possibility that a bond might be called back by the issuer. For a portfolio of bonds, average effective maturity is the weighted average of the maturities of the underlying bonds.

    Average Effective Duration - It is used to measure the market price sensitivity of the fund’s portfolio holdings to changes in interest-rates. Duration is not a complete measure of bond risk and may not be successful.

    Weighted Average Coupon - It is calculated from a fund’s portfolio by weighing the coupon of each bond by its relative size in the portfolio. Coupons are percentages paid out on a fixed-income security on a periodic basis.

    Portfolio Turnover Rate - It is a measure of how quickly securities in a fund are either bought or sold by the fund's managers, over a given period of time.

    Premium / Discount - The amount the fund is trading above or below the reported NAV expressed as a percentage of the NAV. When the fund's market price is greater than the fund's NAV, it is said to be trading at a "Premium" and the percentage is expressed as a positive number. When the fund's market price is less than the fund's NAV, it is said to be trading at a "Discount" and the percentage is expressed as a negative number.

    Market Price performance is determined using the bid/ask midpoint at 4:00 p.m. Eastern time, when the NAV is typically calculated. Market performance does not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times.

    The performance data quoted represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results.  Share price, yield and investment return fluctuate and an investor's shares may be worth more or less that the original cost.

    Total return based on market price represents changes to the fund's closing market price on its primary exchange. Total return based on net asset value (NAV) reflects changes in the fund's NAV during each period.

    Returns are shown net of fund expenses and assumes the reinvestment of all distributions. Investors who purchase shares of the fund through an investment advisor or other financial professional may separately pay a fee to that service provider.

    The return figures provided reflect the absorption of certain fund expenses by BNY Mellon Investment Adviser, Inc. pursuant to an agreement in effect until May 31, 2021, at which time it may be extended, modified or terminated. Had these expenses not been absorbed, the fund's return would have been lower.

    The Bloomberg U.S. Municipal Bond Index covers the U.S. dollar-denominated long-term tax-exempt bond market. Investors cannot invest directly in any index.

            Main Risks

            Bonds are subject generally to interest-rate, credit, liquidity and market risks, to varying degrees. Generally, all other factors being equal, prices of investment-grade bonds are inversely related to interest-rate changes, and rate increases can cause price declines.
            High yield bonds are subject to increased credit risk and are considered speculative in terms of the issuer's perceived ability to continue making interest payments on a timely basis and to repay principal upon maturity.
            The use of leverage magnifies the fund?s investment, market and certain other risks. For derivatives with a leverage component, adverse changes in the value or level of the underlying asset, reference rate or index can result in a loss substantially greater than the amount invested in the derivative itself.
            CEFs are exposed to much of the same risk as other exchange traded products, including liquidity risk on the secondary market, credit risk, concentration risk and discount risk. If the CEF includes foreign market investments, it will be exposed to the typical foreign market risks, including currency, political and economic risk.
            Shares of closed-end funds frequently trade at a market price that is below their net asset value. This is commonly referred to as trading at a discount. This characteristic of shares of closed-end funds is a risk separate and distinct from the risk that the fund's net asset value may decrease.
            The use of derivatives involves risks different from, or possibly greater than, the risks associated with investing directly in the underlying assets. Derivatives can be highly volatile, illiquid, and difficult to value and there is the risk that changes in the value of a derivative held by the portfolio will not correlate with the underlying instruments or the portfolios other investments.

            Standard Deviation - Standard deviation is a statistical measure of the degree to which an individual portfolio return tends to vary from the mean, based on the entire population. The greater the degree of dispersion, the greater the degree of risk. In mutual funds, the standard deviation tells us how much the return on the fund is deviating from the expected normal returns.

            Alpha - Alpha is a measure of a security's or portfolio's excess return.

            Beta - Beta is a measure of a security’s or portfolio’s volatility, or systematic risk.

            R-Squared - R-squared is a statistical measure that represents the percentage of a fund’s or security’s movements that are explained by movements in a benchmark index.

            Sharpe Ratio - Sharpe ratio is a risk-adjusted measure that measures reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better.

            Distributions are sourced entirely from net investment income, unless noted otherwise. If the fund estimates that a portion of its distribution may be comprised of amounts from sources other than net investment income in accordance with its policies and accounting practices, the fund will notify shareholders of the estimated composition of such distribution through a Section 19 Notice.

            Tax consequences of dividend or capital gain distributions may vary by individual taxpayer. There is no guarantee that dividends will be paid. You should not draw any conclusions about the Fund's investment performance from the amount of the fund's distributions. Trading CEFs will also generate tax consequences and transaction expenses. This information is general in nature and is not intended to constitute tax advice. Please consult your own legal or tax advisor for more detailed information on tax issues and advice as they relate to your specific situation.

            Shares of closed-end funds (CEF) are sold in the open market through a stock exchange. Shares may only be purchased or sold through registered broker/dealers. Closed-end funds, unlike open-end funds, are typically not continuously offered.

            Closed-end fund shares are not deposits or obligations of, or guaranteed by, any bank and are not insured by the FDIC or any other agency. CEFs are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of principal amount invested. An investment in the fund may be speculative and it involves a high degree of risk. No assurance can be given that a fund will achieve its investment objective. An investment in CEFs presents a number of risks and is not appropriate for all investors. Investors should carefully review and consider potential risks before investing. Please see Main Risks section above for additional information regarding investment risks.

            Municipal income may be subject to state and local taxes. Some income may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax for certain investors. Capital gains, if any, are taxable.

Please consult with you own tax, legal or financial professional regarding your particular situation.
