State, county and local general governments can issue bonds, as can special districts like transit authorities and school districts. They are traditionally associated with funding infrastructure projects like bridges and waterworks with heavy upfront costs. Bonds can also be issued to raise capital to pay off old debt that was issued at a higher interest rate, similar to how households may refinance their mortgage in a time of low rates. New issue muni-bonds are those bonds that are being currently brought for initial offering to the market.
Whatever the purposes, purchases of municipal bonds are often available to the public and information is publicly listed. Our municipal bond calendar provides a listing of new issues scheduled for the current week, and any others within the past 30 days.
The new issue slate is designed to provide the scheduled sale date, the amount expected to be offered, whether the issue is competitive or negotiated, and its tax-exempt status. You can sort each column to help you find a specific issue more quickly. For negotiated issues, the expected date applies to the entire week. The dollar amount and terms of the sale are subject to change due to market conditions and reception for the particular bond issue.
MuniNet adds value to our calendar listing by allowing you to click on the state in which the issuing entity exists, providing you with a state demographics page. Clicking on select large issues takes you to that entity’s website or its MuniNet demographics page if it is a state, county, or city. Our state pages also include links the official government website.

Scheduled bond sales are listed in order of most forward looking dates first, followed by current and then recent sales (some of which have already come to market).
