MuniFund Term Preferred Shares are a form of preferred share issued by Nuveen municipal bond closed-end funds for the purposes of locking in leverage costs at an attractive fixed tax-exempt cost and to hedge against the risk of rising short-term rates. This hedging effort is designed to improve future common share net earnings and distributions, and to simultaneously provide the opportunity for partial or full liquidity at par for that fund’s outstanding auction-rate preferred shares (ARPS).

The following dates apply to today’s dividend declaration:
