Revenue Anticipation Note

A municipal bond, with a maturity of one year or less, that is repaid to bondholders with expected revenues from the project the RAN intends to finance. For example, a city may issue an RAN to finance improvements to the local museum. It expects to be able to pay back the bond with money raised on increased ticket sales at the museum after improvements are completed.
