Independent Accountant's Report

The Board of Directors of
BNY Mellon Strategic Municipal Bond Fund, Inc.

We have examined management's assertion, included
in the accompanying Report of Management on Compliance
with Certain Provisions of the Investment
Company Act of 1940, that
BNY Mellon Strategic Municipal Bond Fund, Inc.
(the "Company")

complied with the requirements of
subsections (b) and (c) of Rule 17f-2 under the Investment
Company Act of 1940 ("the Act") as of July 31, 2021.

Management is responsible for its assertion about compliance with the requirements of subsections (b) and (c) of Rule 17f-2 of the Act (the specified requirements). Our responsibility is to express an opinion on management's assertion about the Company's compliance with the specified requirements based on our examination.

Our examination was conducted in accordance with the attestation standards established by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we
plan and perform the examination to obtain reasonable assurance about whether management's assertion about compliance with the specified requirements is fairly stated, in all material respects. An examination involves performing procedures to obtain evidence about whether management's assertion is fairly stated, in all material respects. The nature, timing, and extent of the procedures selected depend on our judgment, including an assessment of the risks of material misstatement of management's assertion, whether due to fraud or error. We believe that the evidence we obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

Included among our procedures were the
following tests performed as of July 31, 2021 and with respect to agreement of security purchases and sales, for the period from June 1, 2021 (the date of our last examination), through July 31, 2021:

Confirmation of all securities held by institutions in book entry form (e.g., the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, the Depository Trust Company and various sub-custodians);

Confirmation of all securities hypothecated, pledged, placed in escrow or out for transfer with brokers, pledgees, transfer agents or securities lending administrators;

Reconciliation of all such securities
to the books and records of the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon (the Custodian);

Confirmation of all repurchase agreements with brokers/banks and agreement of underlying collateral with The Bank of New York Mellon (the Custodian) records, if any; and

Agreement of 5 security purchases and 5 security sales or maturities, if occurred, since our last report from the books and records of the Company, to corresponding bank statements.

We believe that our examination provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. Our examination does not provide a legal determination on the Company's compliance with specified requirements.

In our opinion, management's assertion that BNY Mellon Strategic Municipal Bond Fund, Inc. complied with the requirements of subsections (b) and (c) of Rule 17f-2 of the Act as of July 31, 2021, with respect to securities reflected in the investment account of the Company is fairly stated, in all material respects.

This report is intended solely for the information and use of management and the Board of Directors of BNY Mellon Strategic Municipal Bond Fund, Inc. and the Securities and Exchange Commission and is not intended to be and should not be
used by anyone other than these specified parties.
