MSRB State and Local Government Outreach

The MSRB engages with state and local governments that issue municipal securities to share how the MSRB’s Electronic Municipal Market Access (EMMA®) website is a resource for evaluating municipal finance options, complying with disclosure requirements and communicating with investors. The MSRB’s “Putting EMMA to Work for You” campaign seeks to raise awareness by small to mid-sized municipal issuers about the importance of communicating with their investors on an ongoing basis. The MSRB provides practical guidance and tips through a combination of live and internet-based events, including seminars, webinars and live webcast presentations.

The MSRB's state and local outreach effort is an extension of its existing education and outreach program, which includes hosting seminars around the country, presenting at several industry events and providing free online educational resources. While the focus of the expanded outreach effort is on state and local government issuers, the MSRB continues to provide education and outreach for all municipal market participants as part of its mission.

The MSRB’s EMMA website is an online platform that provides free public access to financial disclosure documents and trade data on more than 1.2 million outstanding municipal bonds. Municipal borrowers file their disclosures and other information on EMMA to make them available to investors.
