5 Revenue Bonds Finance Revenue-Paying Projects

Revenue bonds are municipal bonds that are collateralized by revenue produced by the projects they fund. Because they are not backed by the full faith and credit of a municipality, the way general obligation bonds are, they carry a somewhat higher default risk, but pay higher yields in return. To evaluate a revenue bond, it is important to understand the type and cash flow of the project that will be providing the revenue.
