Grant Anticipation Note

A bond issued by a state government or state highway bank that is secured by future, expected federal highway funding. States issue grant anticipation notes to provide cash for immediate or time sensitive needs related to highway construction or maintenance. There is no guarantee the state will receive anticipated funding; however, once it is received, it is used to repay the bond. A grant anticipation note is also called a grant anticipation revenue vehicle or a GARVEE.
