The mutual funds referred to in this website are offered by Prospectus only. For more complete information an investor should consider the investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses of the investment company carefully before investing. The prospectus contains this and other information about the investment company. You may obtain a prospectus and summary prospectuses at no cost from your financial adviser. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The Fund’s principal value, share price, yields, rates and total returns will vary due to changing market conditions, so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. To obtain performance data current to the most recent month-end, an investor may call toll free at 800-276-1262.

Investments are not FDIC-insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity, so they may lose value.

The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Bond prices and, therefore, the value of a bond fund will decline as interest rates rise. Because the Fund invests in securities of a single state, the Fund is more susceptible to factors adversely impacting the state’s securities than a municipal fund that does not concentrate its securities in a single state. A portion of the Fund’s dividends may be subject to state and local taxes and, where applicable, federal alternative minimum tax (AMT).

Morningstar Ratings: For each fund with at least a 3-year history, Morningstar calculates a risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of all sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. These ratings change monthly. The top 10% of funds in each category receive a Morningstar Rating™ of 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. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund and rated separately.) Past performance does not guarantee future results. The information contained herein: (1) is proprietary to Morningstar and/or its content providers; (2) may not be copied or distributed and (3) is not warranted to be accurate, complete or timely. Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information.
