MHHEFA Continuing Disclosure
In accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission rules, each borrower of proceeds of a public issue of the Authority’s bonds has agreed to publicly disclose certain of its financial information and operating data and the occurrence of certain events. The borrowers that provide such information currently disseminate the information through EMMA, a public website maintained by the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (http://www.emma.msrb.org). EMMA provides free online access to official statements, continuing disclosure documents, advance refunding documents and real-time trade price information regarding municipal securities. EMMA may be searched by using the Authority’s name, the borrower’s name or the CUSIP number of the bonds.
