Nuveen Closed-End Funds Declare Monthly Distributions

Distributions Increase for 80 Municipal Closed-End Funds

Nuveen Investments, a leading global provider of investment services to institutions and high-net-worth investors, today announced that 106 Nuveen closed-end funds had declared regular monthly distributions. These funds represent a broad range of tax-exempt, taxable fixed and floating rate income investment strategies for investors seeking to build sophisticated and diversified long-term investment portfolios for cash flow. The funds' monthly distributions are listed below.

Monthly distributions from Nuveen's municipal closed-end funds and portfolios are generally exempt from regular Federal income taxes, and monthly distributions of single-state municipal funds and portfolios are also exempt from state and, in some cases, local income taxes for in-state residents. Unless otherwise stated in the funds' objectives, monthly distributions of the municipal funds and portfolios may be subject to the Federal Alternative Minimum Tax for some shareholders.
Nuveen funds generally seek to pay stable distributions at rates that reflect each fund's past results and projected future performance. During certain periods, each fund may pay distributions at a rate that may be more or less than the amount of net investment income actually earned by the fund during the period. If a fund cumulatively earned more than it has paid in distributions, it holds the excess in reserve as undistributed net investment income (UNII) as part of the fund's net asset value (NAV). Conversely, if a fund has cumulatively paid distributions in excess of its earnings, the excess constitutes negative UNII that is likewise reflected in the fund's NAV. Each fund will, over time, pay all of its net investment income as distributions to shareholders. The funds' positive or negative UNII balances are disclosed from time to time in their periodic shareholder reports, and are also on

JFP, the Nuveen Tax-Advantaged Floating Rate Fund, has implemented a managed distribution policy which permits it to include as part of its monthly distributions supplemental amounts from sources other than net investment income. This fund currently expects that any supplemental amounts would represent anticipated portfolio price appreciation over time once financial market conditions stabilize and prospects begin to improve for the middle market financial companies in which the fund primarily invests. Because the timing and extent of any such recovery is presently difficult to assess in light of continued market volatility and the negative effects on financial companies of the on-going credit crisis, the fund's latest monthly distribution is estimated to contain only net investment income and does not include any supplemental amounts.
Because a managed distribution program permits regular distributions from sources other than net investment income, it is important to understand the components of a managed distribution and the fund's NAV performance relative to its distribution rate. JFP posts information and estimates on regarding the sources of distributions and total return performance over various time periods. In addition, at least in any month in which fund distributions include supplemental amounts from sources other than net investment income, the fund will also send this information directly to shareholders. Estimates are for informational purposes only, and the final determination of the source and tax characteristics of all distributions paid in 2009 will be made in early 2010 and reported to shareholders on Form 1099-DIV at that time.

In addition, distributions for certain funds investing in real estate investment trusts (REITs) may later be characterized as capital gains and/or a return of capital, depending on the character of the dividends reported to each fund after year-end by REIT securities held by each fund. The Nuveen preferred securities funds, JTP, JPS and JHP may invest in REITs; a list of funds that are likely to be affected by re-characterization is posted to each January, and updated tax characteristics are posted to the web site and mailed to shareholders via form 1099-DIV during the first quarter of the year.
